At times moving, at others hilarious and ultimately very tragic, Lenny is, to put it simply, a beautiful film. This is now one of my favorite Dustin Hoffman performances and the black and white visual is simple stunning. This movie is criminally underseen.

By today's standards it'd be a pretty average biopic. It's funny how formulaic all of these "geniuses" are in the way that they lived their lives. Dustin Hoffman was great, and really salvaged an otherwise boring movie. Oh, and don't get me wrong, I'm not selling Lenny's influence short by any means.

Dustin is Dustin and Bob Fosse has an incredibly solid resume as a director, but this is still a biopic and is inevitably hurt by a well shot, well acted reenactment of one of Lenny's most famous bits.

Hoffman is very good here, and the black and white photography is beautiful, but like most biopics this falls short of being a really good movie. Some nice directorial touches from Fosse.

A well-made biopic with great cinematography and acting. Did a good job of showing the life of a controversial comic.

First, I would submit this as exhibit E proving that Dustin Hoffman is one of the greatest living actors. Second, I would submit this as exhibit HH proving that a great actor can only elevate a film so much.

This movie is all about Dustin Hoffman's performance as Lenny Bruce. The movie is really slow at times and takes too much time indulging itself in seemingly needless stuff. Also the detoriation of Bruce goes so fast that we barely get any character development whatsoever. I know it's based on real-life, but still I believe it could have been done better. If you're a fan of Hoffmann or Lenny Bruce, it's worth a watch, but it's not really really that great a movie compared to it's contemporaries.

The story is fairly generic, but Hoffman gives a powerhouse performance that keeps the viewer engaged.

On the surface, just another warts-and-all biopic, but its made with such creative flair and acted with such passion that it becomes irresistable. Bruce's legacy speaks for itself of course, and yet the movie still manages to seem invaluable. Surtees' beautiful black and white cinematography and the films showbiz trappings echoes 8, but whereas that film was about survival, love, life and art, Lenny is a film of decay, misery, death and art. Guess which one I prefer.

Hoffman's bravura portrayal of the tortured, self-destructive, brilliantly inventive comic Lenny Bruce is enough of a reason to see this. The film uses material from Bruce's trials which are "performed" by Hoffman as part of his nightclub act.
