Down In The Delta Movie Review

Maya Angelou, movie director? Angelou's little experiment is so god-awful it's astonishing it was ever made. The "uplifting" story of Woodard's city-bred character -- a drunk so dumb she can't make change for a fiver and bug-eyed as all get-out -- who heads down south to get a taste of her southern roots. Soon enough, she's learned a little something about life, family, and the slave trade -- and everything is all better. Wholly unbelievable and devoid of any interest whatsoever, you'll probably find youself dozing off repeatedly during this excruciating experience of a film.
