2SR: Lenny, a Lenny Bruce biopic directed by Bob Fosse

September 23, 2010

Lenny should be required viewing for anyone interested in the First Amendment, racism, LGBTQ issues, or life in the 1960s.

I’d go so far as to recommend that all public school seniors watch Dustin Hoffman portray Lenny Bruce and his fight against censorship as part of a US history or American government class – those under 17 could bring a signed note from a parent or guardian – but that type of recommendation seems controversial even today.
