Review: Tyler Perry Finger Paints For Colored Girls

My review of For Colored Girls, Tyler Perry's film adaptation of poet/playwright Ntozake Shange's iconic choreopoem, is now live at Read it please.

In the interview I did not comment the film's soundtrack, but I bought it yesterday and give it thumbs up.

Here is "Four Women," Nina Simone's classic song. In this movie's version of the song, Laura Izibor's and Ledisi's voices join Simone's.

Great critique. Wasn't sure I would read the whole thing after reading in your introduction that you neither loved or hated the film. Yet, your nuanced thoughts drew me into your material. Thanks.
