100 Years of Paramount Pictures
USA, 2001, Louis C.K.
Lambasted upon release as everything from a “train wreck” (Roger Ebert) to “audience abuse” (The Onion A.V. Club), this dumb, tasteless movie (derived from a sketch on The Chris Rock Show) is now considered an alt-comedy classic. A young black man rises from a small town outside Gary, Indiana to become an ultra-cool ghetto folk icon: ladies’ man, pop star, and crime-fighting superhero. But when he warns inner-city kids about foods and substances that are bad for them, white corporate America plots to compromise and emasculate him. With Lance Crouther, Wanda Sykes, and Chris Rock. 35mm. 81 min.
