The genesis of cinematic genius has been the subject of many movies, but none of them has delved into a character as charismatic and suave as Rudy Ray Moore. As portrayed by a never-better Eddie Murphy, Moore is the most endearing real-life character you’re likely to see on screen this year.
The film follows the infamous and hilarious production of Moore’s landmark blaxploitation classic Dolemite. Bathed in costume designer Ruth E Carter’s 1970s-era glam, and featuring fall-on-the-floor-great supporting performances by Da’Vine Joy Randolph and Wesley Snipes, this film is already legendary.
Dolemite is My Name directed by Craig Brewer. Written by Scott Alexander, Larry Karaszewski. With Eddie Murphy, Wesley Snipes, Keegan Michael-Key. 117 min.
