Dolemite Is My Name

Dolemite Is My Name ★★★★

I almost didn´t recognize Eddy Murphy and Wesley Snipes! They become so old.... And their characters are different from their usual roles.

This Biopic about Rudy Ray Moore is great if you care for Blaxploitation or want to get some background about the genre. I had watched "Dolemite" a few days before. To get an idea how Moore is and how the movie has been produced was just great!

It starts rather slow but with a great 70s atmosphere. At the latest, when Da'Vine Joy Randolph shows up momentum comes into the movie.

"Dolemite is my name" is just super funny. I especially enjoyed the questions about the plot of "Dolemite" and having additional information I need to re-watch it soon.

Additionally, I was pleased to see Bob Odenkird in a small siderole.
