Dolemite Is My Name ★★★½

Eddie Murphy joins the best group of black actors ever (Craig Robinson, Tituss Burgess, Snoop Dogg...) to tell an incredible - and somehow inspiring - story: the story of Rudy Ray Moore, a successful stand up comedian who becomes a blaxpoitation icon in the blink of an eye. Funny, desecrating, steeped in black culture, Dolemite is My Name tells a story that seems distant in time, but it's stunningly applicable, even after all these years.
