Bamboozled (2000)


I last watched Bamboozled perhaps a decade ago, and I'm glad to say that it seems even better than the first viewing, bar the intensity of the climax (some things work better the first time). Spike Lee's direction is amazing (rough and unpolished, just like Baise-moi). This is the best acting role I've seen by the not-too-talented Damon Wayans as the lead character, Jada Pinkett is sweet to the eye as his help, Mos Def is real fun as a shit-for-brains gangster, but the movie's only really good performance is that of Michael Rapaport, who plays the TV executive. Shit, this niggah is (nearly) worth the entire movie itself, and is so real.
