[Reno] delivers a monologue that manages to incorporate both the horror and the absurdity of the situation in a well-balanced fashion.
When [Reno] lets her radical flag fly, taking angry potshots at George W. Bush, Henry Kissinger, Larry King, et al., Reno devolves into a laugh-free lecture.
If Reno is to the left of liberal on the political spectrum, her tough, funny, rather chaotic show isn't subversive so much as it is nit-picky about the hypocrisies of our time.
What seems like a nut-on-a- bar-stool rant morphs into a triumphal evocation of the emotional-political bluster of that time.
The film delivers not just the full assault of Reno's immense wit and insight, but a time travel back to what it felt like during those unforgettably uncertain days.
Director Nancy Savoca's no-frills record of a show forged in still-raw emotions captures the unsettled tenor of that post 9-11 period far better than a more measured or polished production ever could.
Works because Reno doesn't become smug or sanctimonious towards the audience.
Even though the film runs a brief 71 minutes -- finishing off with footage of Reno talking with New Yorkers on the street in the aftermath of 9/11 -- Reno shows enough gusto to make you a fan.
