Lenny

B&W cinematography and production design is A+. Could watch this film all day for faces, atmosphere and craft in general. Cinematographer Bruce Surtees is one of the greats. And the editing by Alan Heim has the rhythm of a Lenny Bruce stand-up show.

Valerie Perrine is truly fantastic in this. No wonder she won Best Actress at Cannes that year.

Twilight Time Blu-ray has audio commentary by film historians Julie Kirgo and Nick Redman.
