Manufacturer Description

Two-time OscarÂ(r) winner* Dustin Hoffman brings controversial 60s comedian Lenny Bruce tolife in this landmark (Variety) film that earned six OscarÂ(r) nominations,** including Best Picture. A jagged portrait of a man driven to mainlining honesty into the arteries of a hypocritical culture (Newsweek), Lenny is artful, imaginative (Los Angeles Times) and truly an extraordinary film (Saturday Review)! From his first gig as a nervous Catskillcomedian, it's obvious that Lenny Bruce is a force to be reckoned with. Armed with a shocking routine and a stripper as his muse (Valerie Perrine), Lenny turns comedyand Americaon its ear with his abrasive and often offensive humor. But life in the smoke-filled bars of the comedy circuit begins to take its toll. The drugs and arrests for his subject matter wear heavily on this maverick crusader but don't stop him from pushing the envelope right to his tragic and myth-making end. *1988: Actor, Rain Man; 1979: Actor, Kramer vs. Kramer **1974: Actor (Hoffman), Actress (Perrine), Director, Screenplay Adapted from Other Material, Cinematography
