Dolemite is My Name (2019)
Directed by Craig Brewer
With Eddie Murphy, Keegan-Michael Key, Mike Epps
Rated R, 118 minutes, DCP
Similar to previous loving looks at DIY filmmakers (Ed Wood) and rogue artists (Man on the Moon), native South Bender Larry Karaszewski and writing partner Scott Alexander team with director Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow) to tell the story of Rudy Ray Moore (aka, Dolemite).
Moore (Eddie Murphy) was a struggling singer and comedian working in a record store in early-1970s Hollywood. Building a dozens-esque character pulled together from his everyday encounters, Moore invented Dolemite, a pimp who headlined various media, including blaxploitation films that delivered worldwide fame.
