Jay H’s review published on Letterboxd:
The first "secret screening" at FF2019. Look, this movie doesn't reinvent the biopic but it's so goddamn entertaining and warm w/terrific performances by Eddie Murphy, Wesley Snipes and Da'Vine Joy Randolph. Hell, in a just world Murphy would be nominated for Best Actor and Snipes for Best Supporting (he steals every scene he's in, which is a thing given how good Murphy is). Should be popping up on Netflix any day now and absolutely worth the watch. Then flip over to Amazon Prime and watch DOLEMITE again.
