The United States vs. Billie Holiday


Recommended Posts

I have not seen the movie, and probably won't as the reviews are poor. The day Andra Day got her award I had the urge to write a very modest "hommage" to share my love of Billie Holiday on another site I'm a member of (audio stuff). What a singer!

It could well be that Billie was a bit on the wild side, but there is no reason an actress should be asked to debase herself to replicate this part of Billie's life. It is one of the things that prompted me to give up on film as an art form, films have become soft core or even hardcore porn films.

In a Lubitsch film, when a couple is about to do the deed, they draw the curtains. That's all we need to see. That was art.
