Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

Ma Rainey's Black Bottom ★★★★

“Where is my cold Coca-Cola?!?!”

Man this was an intriguing watch! Not only was there exceptional acting all around but they made a recording session so much fun to watch. Viola Davis was scary and sometimes downright funny as Ma Rainey. I would not want to get in her way of doing things. 

I think I smell Oscar buzz for Viola... Next, we have Chadwick Boseman, RIP. I also smell Oscar buzz for him as well. Respect. His performance was amazing. I imagine anyone that watched this movie could have heard a pen drop after every time Levee had dialogue. Colman Domingo stood out too. I love him in Fear TWD and I just loved him in this too. Damn good acting. There’s not much else to say. Just a fun and satisfying watch from Netflix.
