Hope you’ll check it out — lots of (nasty) video:
Movies about comedians range in quality from the masterful Lenny to the legendarily unwatchable Wired.
Few filmmakers can resist the urge to get all zany and wacky and pretentious and corny. (Look if you dare at the celluloid nightmare known as Holy Flying Circus.)
Most directors and performers seem content with capturing uncanny impersonations on film without bothering too much about decent dialogue and an engaging plot, not just a montage of one Very Famous Incident after another.
It is possible to combine all those elements, even with unpromising source material; you certainly don’t expect a film about the tragic love lives of the Carry On gang (!) to turn out to be a little gem.
So will Kinison turn out more like Cor, Blimey! or Man on the Moon?
We’ll have to wait until next year to find out.
