LENNY (1974) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Dustin Hoffman, Valerie Perrine, Jan Miner, Stanley Beck, Gary Morton
Directed By:  Bob Fosse
Composed By:  Various, Ralph Burns

“Bob Fosse’s remarkable film version of Julian Barry’s legit play stars Dustin Hoffman in an outstanding performance. Production was photographed in black and white, lending not only a slight period influence but also capturing the grit and the sweat, as well as the private and public tortures of its principal character.”
—Variety

“Harsh, funny, grim, and, like all Bob Fosse’s films, concerned with the intersection of life and showbiz…Visually striking.”
—TV Guide

“So brilliant—and so brilliantly acted by Dustin Hoffman…The production, photographed in glorious black-and-white, has a fine, seedy look.”
—Vincent Canby, The New York Times

Lenny (1974), director Bob Fosse’s follow-up to his award-winning Cabaret (1972), zeroes in on the controversial real-life comedian, Lenny Bruce (compellingly incarnated by Dustin Hoffman), best remembered after his drug-induced death as a kind of free-speech martyr. Told in pseudo-documentary style highlighted by Bruce Surtees’ gritty black-and-white cinematography, the film gives us a portrait of the artist as a tortured advocate of liberation, remembered by mother, wife, friends, and colleagues.
