The story of Tina Turner is next up for Women's History month, as this shattering musical biopic (based on Tina's own autobiography) gives us the life of Anna Mae Bullock in visceral, energetic close-up. It covers the bases of the formula biography movie but differs in its portrayal of the relationship between Ike and Tina, which is shown in harrowing and unflinching fashion. Angela Bassett and Laurence Fishburne gave two dynamic performances, for which they were both nominated for Oscars in 1993. Frankly, they should have both won too- they're outstanding in the movie and their scenes together blow everyone else off the screen. Tina Turner's ultimate triumph against her abusive, violent and controlling husband comes as a life-affirming, powerful inspiration for all victimized women.
