Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: This entertaining exploration of black hair issues will get your dander up.
Fresh: Rock sheds new light on this old story through a poignant mix of interviews, investigation and his trademark satire.
Fresh: It's funny, clever and marginally educational. You can tell your friends you went to a documentary without having felt as if you saw one.
Fresh: If you arrive at Good Hair never having thought about the complexities of black hair, bring a notebook. If you are a black woman wearing a weave, bring a tissue.
I saw this movie because the trailers looked very funny. And alot of it is. But buried deep within the humor are some commentaries on African Americans (particularly woman) and their relationship with their hair that make you stop, and reflect. Recommend it.
A very creative, informative, and entertaining documentary covering various aspects of the black hair industry.
as well as informative. Chris Rock brings an interesting point of view to a particular facet of hair care. I didn't realize black women's hair care is complex and expensive. Chris Rick goes deep into the subject of good hair vs bad hair and the extremes to obtain the "good hair". It's eye opening for someone like myself who had no clue about this subject.
