    Roxie Hart is a real treat, not to mention one of Stanley Kubrick’s favorite movies.

    Great Balls of Fire is underrated – not as good as The Buddy Holly Story but better than most generic musician biopics. I remember a delightful scene where Jerry Lee Lewis drives up to a school and everybody outside is dancing and it’s totally surreal.

    The Wonderful, Horrible Life of Leni Riefenstahl is a provocative movie but I somehow don’t think it went far enough (in spite of its length) in terns of exploring all of the issues it raises.

    Anything else on your list worth a look?

      True, its lots of fun. Adolphe Menjou was also great in Kubrick’s Paths of Glory. Damn fine actor.

      I loved Great Balls of Fire too and i loved that it was surreal. It didn’t take itself too seriously and was a lot of fun. Like when Jerry Lee upstages Chuck Berry by setting fire to the piano and continued playing it. Wild.

      Definitely others worth checking out. The Lenny Bruce Documentary’s OK. There’s a much better one out there. Hated is a very interesting documentary, but very challenging. You need warning before going into it. Number 10 is pretty fun. Heavy Petting, #2 is also pretty fun and has a pretty cool soundtrack.
