    Lee Daniels could have done more. The idea was excellent. I love Michael B. Jordan. However, you couldn’t tell what was going on for most of the picture and it was hard to see the clothing.

      I also wanted to say, that it did have some very wonderful, interesting elements that just didn’t come all the way out like they should have. For some reason I want to set these pictures to Calloway’s interpretation of St. James Infirmary. I don’t know, if I could give the pics a soundtrack. That song would be it.
