2014. USA. Dir: Chris Rock. With Rock, Rosario Dawson. 102 min.
Rock’s howlingly funny, star-filled riff on the Sullivan’s Travels/Birdman model sees a comedian trying to abandon his soulless yet lucrative “Hammy the Bear” franchise for the uncommercial prestige slave drama “Uprize.” Meanwhile, an unexpected encounter with a journalist leads him to confront his life at its most earnestly intimate and shamelessly, hilariously crass.
