A nice exploration of comedy and the 'lines' that comedians play with. Was an interesting documentary.
Brilliant humor documentary about something that isn't funny at all.
Must see for every generation.
A brilliant and profoundly moving documentary on the limits of humor and a survivors journey of memory and life.
Emotional, funny and absorbing. Memory, taboo and how we heal are explored through the lens of a Renee Firestone, an incredibly resilient and surprisingly lighthearted holocaust survivor, and top comedians including Mel Brooks, Sarah Silverman and Gilbert Gottfried. The film is heartbreaking and hilarious - a philosophical romp into how humor defines our humanity. Director Pearlstein handles the complexities deftly and with a cinematic eye. More important than ever to see.
Asks the question "when can we joke about the Holocaust"? Hilarious, touching, and though-provoking.
This was an enjoyable film I saw at the 2016 Chagrin Documentary Film Festival. Comedians old (Mel Brooks) and new (Sarah Silverman) talk about whether there are taboo subjects in comedy. They particularly talk about laughter related to the holocaust. In parallel to this the director interviews a mother and daughter. The mother is holocaust survivor Renee Firestone who has held onto a sense of humor and joy for life despite the horrors she experienced in her youth.
