so he’s got this in the bag, right?
This is incredible
Tough to say. He’s gonna go against Delroy Lindo, I assume.
Everyone was so damn good in this. Boseman owns this film for sure, but I feel like Colman Domingo should be getting more praise as well.
This was amazing.
One of the best films I've seen this year.
This was fine
Everyone acted the hell out of this and the movie overall was GOOD, but I am mad as hell because I learned close to nothing about Ma Rainey and that’s what I was expecting to SEE.
Seeing the then cancer-ridden, now no longer with us man of faith Chadwick Boseman perform a monologue in which his character called God a motherfucker for not intervening was really something. Took me back to how I felt in the week after his death. Man do I wish he were still around.
Yeah, as a whole this didn't connect to me as much as I hoped. But the whole cast, especially Boseman, is so good. Not a bad performance in it.
I adored this and found this to be a really thought provoking story about how people exploit one another. Monologues were high points but I loved pretty much everything about this.
Chadwick Bozeman and Viola Davis did such a fantastic job in this. The ending really shocked me.
thought this was a pretty frustrating watch honestly, not in the way it was probably intended
truly fantastic performances from every lead, no doubt. Boseman gave his heart and soul
no surprise here, right
the acting is fantastic. the direction and plotting did nothing for me. seems to be the case so often with these stage to screen adaptations
Yeah I mostly treat these as acting showcases and nothing more really.
Great acting, shitty script/writing
It’s a bad adaptation, but the play is brilliant.
I really did not think the writing of this film was bad or shitty by any means.
Yeah I mean really the worst thing you can (fairly) say about it is it’s unexcitingly made. Like it’s just a pedestrian translation of a play to film. But I enjoyed everything about the performances and characters and all that.
