Lenny Bruce kicked ass. Dustin Hoffman still kicks ass, and shows off some killer acting chops in this stylized biopic of the 60s comedy icon. Various scenes of Lenny’s life are interspersed with interviews of those close to the legend, showing the rise and fall of the comedian who set the groundwork for modern comedy. With killer direction by Bob Fosse (All That Jazz) and some sweet editing, this is a fascinating biopic, much like Lenny himself.


Kelly has been hanging around Metro since December 2016. When Metro realized that they couldn’t get rid of him, they gave him a job! Kelly loves 70s American films, and he also loves all of Dustin Hoffman’s work. Bam! You got a match made in heaven. (Also, Kelly thinks he looks like Mr. Hoffman, humour him please.)
