Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

Ma Rainey's Black Bottom ★★★★

This is based on a play, isn't it?

*looks it up*

Yep, I knew it. I love it.

This movie features two of the best performances of the year. Chadwick Boseman might seriously win a posthumous Oscar. He deserves it. He was incredible here. May he rest in peace. Viola Davis is also amazing. Equally Oscar worthy.

If you're not a fan movies based on plays, you probably won't like this one, because it's VERY based on a play. Limited locations, driven by long stretches of dialogue, not very cinematic, but incredible if you like that, and I love it.
