Confessionsofa Ex-Doofus-Itchyfooted Mutha
(Melvin Van Peebles, 2008, Digi-Beta, 99 min)
Melvin Van Peebles (Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song) strikes again with an uproarious coming-of-age story based on his 1982 Broadway show Waltz of the Stork. The 75-year-old Peebles writes, directs and stars as himself, starting as a 10-year-old kid and winding up in his 47th year. This madcap tale is equal parts adventure, comedy, musical, romance and historical epic as the itchy-footed Peebles careens through the decades, encountering scores of seminal moments and figures in Black culture. Peebles maximizes the technical versatility of digital media in his wildly exuberant yet touchingly personal jaunt in the world of postmodern storytelling.
