DOLEMITE IS MY NAME
DOLEMITE IS MY NAME, Dir. Craig Brewer, USA, 118 min, 2019.

Hilarious, exhilarating, heartfelt and unmissable, Craig Brewers love-letter of a biopic (written by masters Larry Karaszewski and Scott Alexander) to the king of the party record and self-made movie star Rudy Ray Moore is blessed with an avalanche of riches including scene-stealing performances from Eddie Murphy, Wesley Snipes, DaVine Joy Randolph, Craig Robinson, Titus Burgess, Snoop Dogg, Chris Rock, Keegan-Michael Key and many, many more!

1970s, Los Angeles. Rudy Ray Moore is an entertainer trying to carve out a career from nightclub gigs while working during the day at a record store. Worrying that his chance to break big might be passing him by, Rudy looks to re-invigorate his act and comes up with a new persona named Dolemite, a pimp with a cane and an arsenal of obscene stories. Dolemite becomes an instant hit within black communities across America and it isnt long before Rudy has his eye on the logical next step: the silver screen, where Dolemite can reach an even bigger audience. Hollywood may not be ready for Dolemite, but Dolemite is ready to take on every sucker to prove that legends are not born, they are sculpted out of sweat, tears and a touch of luck.

Brimming with joy and love from first to final frame, Eddie Murphy delivers what might be the most heartfelt performance of his career. Dolemite Is My Name is one of the most unforgettable films in the annals of cinema: charming, hilarious, and often moving, this tribute to The Godfather of Rapwho remains the first love of many modern musicians, comedians and filmmakerscaptures a time and place in Hollywood and the portrayal of a man who simply could not give up. So put your weight on it and join Beyond Fest in celebrating a man so incredible, hed have to be invented if he hadnt been born: Rudy Ray Moore and the legend of Dolemite! -Evrim Ersoy
