Acclaim

"One of the most truthful documentaries about show business I've seen. Also maybe the funniest... She remains one of the most transgressive and fearless of comedians, and one of the quickest, fastest and most merciless. The doc shows a life force of formidable energy."
Roger Ebert, The Chicago Sun Times
"SHARP AND IRRESISTIBLE. Rip-roaring… Her energy is a thing to behold..She’s the comedian as teller of uproariously toxic, gutbucket truths as surely as Lenny Bruce or Richard Pryor ever were…"
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"An ABSOLUTELY RIVETING portrait of a woman who is a creature of show business: tireless, ageless, unforgiving--and always, always funny."
Leonard Maltin, Secret's Out
"PROFANELY HILARIOUS. FASTEN YOUR SEAT BELTS THIS DOC WILL BE A REVELATION."
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"THOROUGHLY EXHILARATING"
David Edelstein, New York Magazine
