Dolemite Is My Name ★★★★

Such a minor thing, but I think it says a lot about this movie’s intentions: there’s always a boom mic hovering dangerously close to the actors during the sequences showing the filming of the original Dolemite, but it’s never used as the butt of a joke or made to make that film look ‘bad.’

Was curious if the rumors surrounding Rudy Ray Moore’s sexuality would be addressed in this, so it was a nice surprise to see that it’s very much in there, if subtly.
