oldfilmsflicker: Be sure to watch Bessie tonight on HBO! Great performances and a great film from writer/director Dee Rees (Pariah). They don’t shy away from showing the queer aspects of both Bessie Smith and Ma Rainey’s lives. Queen Latifah better win all the awards for her amazing performance. Mo’Nique is back and better than ever. Khandi Alexander will break your heart. Michael Kenneth Williams gets to showcase that intensity we all love and Mike Epps is a rock. It’s just a damn good…
Dee Rees Jul 7, 2014 By Jade Earle Dee has received critical acclaim for her film, “Pariah,” which she also wrote and directed. If “Pariah” is any indication, we can only imagine how great her upcoming Bessie Smith biopic, “Bessie” will be. Kudos to the fact that she’ll be directing Queen Latifah who’ll be playing Bessie.
