The United States vs. Billie Holiday

The United States vs. Billie Holiday ★½

this movie is embargoed so I’ll wait but…lol


Now that I’m allowed to say it—this movie sucks. It’s entertaining because it’s terrible but it’s not so bad it’s good, it’s actually just exhausting. It’s offensive in so many ways it’s actually hard to put into words. The editing is horrible, the script is bland and the actors are wasted. You wouldn’t know if Trevante Rhodes was  as good i know he is as an actor from this. and while Andra is kind of good, she isn’t good enough to distract from how bad this whole thing is.  I will also say that this movie does not benefit from being release after Judas and the Black Messiah as that would be a better use of your time. I don’t really know what they intended to do with this movie but they didn’t do it. Definitely didn’t.
