Dolemite Is My Name
A Golden Globe-nominated biographical comedy, Dolomite Is My Name stars Eddie Murphy as actor-filmmaker Rudy Ray Moore. Moore is best known for playing the character of Dolemite in both his stand-up routine and a series of blaxploitation films that started with 1975’s Dolemite, which was followed by 1976’s The Human Tornado and 2002’s The Dolemite Explosion.
Murphy’s performance as the irreverent and foul-mouthed blaxploitation filmmaker was irresistibly funny and even earned him a Best Actor Golden Globe nomination. Aside from Murphy, critics have also applauded the scene-stealing acting of Da’Vine Joy Randolph as Lady Reed.
