Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work

Posted in

Fascinating documentary on the grand and kinda trashy old dame of show business.  Joan Rivers is really funny.  She's also incredibly fascinating.  Dignity is not exactly her strong suit, as she needs desperately to be wanted and also desperately to live a high class lifestyle.  This is an excellent example of a documentary that gets out of its own way and lets the subject paint its own picture, and it turns out to be a fascinating thing indeed.

If you like Joan Rivers, you should probably see this movie.  If you don't like Joan Rivers, then you should definitely see this movie.
