Dolemite Is My Name

Eddie Murphy portrays real-life legend Rudy Ray Moore, a comedy and rap pioneer who proved naysayers wrong when his hilarious, obscene, kung-fu fighting alter ego, Dolemite, became a 1970s Blaxploitation phenomenon.

Eddie Murphy is the best he has been in years (at least since Dreamgirls), playing the comedian and blaxploitation star Rudy Ray Moore in this affectionate, funny, but soft-focus biopic (no warts, no all).

A Tale of Love and Darkness

The story of young Amos Oz, growing up in Jerusalem in the years before Israeli statehood with his parents; his academic father, Arieh, and his dreamy, imaginative mother, Fania.

It is an interesting choice for a filmmaker's debut... However, after watching, it seems like no one else could have pulled off this striking balance between romance and melancholy as well as Portman.
