Historial drama was good. Focused view of character was good. Found myself wanting more length wise.

Beautifully acted movie that will make you feel like you're watching a play. Great if you loved Inglorious Basterds.

Not at all what I expected. Based on a play by August Wilson. Had I known this before watching it would’ve made more sense. An absolutely phenomenal performance from Chadwick Boseman. He makes the film and it really is Oscar worthy. RIP

Framed by a pair of powerhouse performances, Ma Rainey's Black Bottom pays affectionate tribute to a blues legend -- and Black culture at large.

Great movie - Viola Davis and Chadwick Boseman are both incredible. As a jazz fan and having studied it the music is amazing and so on point, apart from the last scene!
