StatedJuggler77’s review published on Letterboxd:
I didn’t really have very high expectations for this as it’s a Netflix Original but wow this was good.
Dolemite Is My Name follows Eddie murphy as Rudy Ray Moore a.k.a Dolemite trying to make a movie. I definetly think Eddie Murphy should get some award recognition for his role as Dolemite as his performance was great. He really captured the funny sided Dolemite as well as the emotional side. I thought the premise was really great and as I want to be a filmmaker in the future this was a treat to watch. There was many funny scenes but my favourite was the “sex scene”. It was extremely funny to watch. My only con with this film is that some of the side charchters felt wooden and I feel they could have had a lot more development such as the screenwriter.
