Lenny

Lenny

1974 (Bob Fosse) R, 111 minutes

Dustin Hoffman; Valerie Perrine

Based on a stage play written by screenwriter Julian Barry, Lenny serves up slices of Lenny Bruce's life, reducing its subject to a crown-of-thorns provocateur martyred by The Man. Still, as a romanticized chronicle of Bruce's rise from nervous newcomer (pushed to the stage by his performer mom) to one of the most famous comics in America, this somber and reflective elegy has plenty to recommend it. Hoffman channels Bruce's stage routines with spooky fidelity.
