Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

Ma Rainey's Black Bottom ★★★½

Like everyone, I was terribly sad to hear of Chadwick Boseman's unexpected passing, but I am also glad that he ended his career on a high note with possibly his best performance.

And we can't comment on performances without talking about Viola Davis'; she just simply cannot give a bad one. Despite her eponymous role only being on the screen for less than half an hour, she runs the show every time she's on it -just like Ma Rainey, herself.

Rest In Peace, Chadwick. A greatly kind and talented human being gone too soon. He's been sorely missed for the past 4-and-a-half months and will forever more.
