Plot Summary

Looking for Lenny is an in-depth documentary that uses controversial comic, Lenny Bruce's legacy to explore the present condition of the fear of words and expression. Because of his provocative subject matter, Bruce was arrested and charged with obscenity inmultiple cities. He spent much of his life struggling through court battles and public harassment, until he died at age 39 of a morphine overdose. "Looking for Lenny" tells the story of Bruce's life, accompanied by interviews with comedy legends, politicians,and celebrity friends of Lenny Bruce. The film explores the fear of offense and the subsequent rise of political correctness in America. As censorship becomes more rigid and prevalent, we are effectively at risk of losing one of the greatest American civil liberties: the freedom of speech.

Customer Reviews

Worth buying and more

This documentary rings true on so many levels and I commend the director for taking apart , as well as another look, at Lenny Bruce's story. It holds many important, yet overlooked, aspects of America, and issues that are carried into many neighborhoods and mainstream populations. It really should be on television to bring back old generations and stories that have been washed away with Hollywood and the street-life. Not only are we carried back in time, this film also brings these issues into our generation with the interaction of many well-known individuals, making it even more eye-opening. 5 stars and two thumbs up.
