[6.25/10] Ma Rainey's Black Bottom (2020)

Ma Rainey's Black Bottom (2020)

Quick Review: Flaunting a pair of bravura performances - Boseman's last, but also his best, and Davis' strongest since "The Help", as the self-centered blues diva, and some radiant recreation of '20s Chicago, "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom" sadly underwhelms with a simplistic run- of-the-mill story with limited setting, too much dialogue, and barely any singing, which in the end gives it the 'uncinematic' feel of a stage play, on what the film's based on.
