Dolemite Is My Name ★★★½

Luck is where opportunity meets preparation.

2019 Ranked.

I don't really have much to say about this besides that I really liked it. Eddie Murphy's performance is amazing, is very comedic and charming, and the rest of the cast is also very good and engaging.
So Dolemite Is My Name tells the story about Rudy Ray Moore, an ambitious comedian making his way into the business. Dolemite tries to make his own blaxploitation movie after his stand-ups become successful. A biogaphical movie that never bores.
The film within a film approach and the 70's aesthetic are very entertaining and the real footage at the end made this even more enjoyable.
