  1. Ayinde Anderson's rating of the film Bessie

    overall disappointing IMO. It seemed to lack those personal connections that would allow me to really understand what those highlights in her life meant to her. A glimpse of an abusive upbringing doesn't go far enough to show what singing and success means for her.
