When Jews Were Funny
From the 1930's to the 1970's, pretty well every comedian or comic you might see on TV or the movies was Jewish. Jews came to dominate the world of western‐society comedy on radio, stage and screen alike.Why did Jews dominate comedy in this period? And why did that domination end? Were Jews just funnier back then? And if so, did that extend to your average Jew on the street? In this 90 minute documentary acclaimed director Alan Zweig will examine these questions and many others in this exploration of 20th century humour, cultural decay, and a search for a missing heritage.

(us) wrote: Low-end blaxploitation with Billy Dee embracing decidedly militant outlook which ends up proving nothing and accomplishing nothing. A really bleak outlook overall and only extreme views are presented.
(es) wrote: An older and quiet cashier, who is a dedicated Sunday painter, falls for a young woman whom he saves from a beating one night. Soon enough she, along with her crook boyfriend, starts exploiting the man's emotions and paintings. A film about obsession and the illusion of love, as dark and painfully honest as they come. Lang once again examines the uncomfortable side of crime, a crime of passion that feels like a noir revenge flick too, and makes use of great atmospheric and psychological tension. It's very interesting to notice the element of painting as the expression of hidden away inner feelings. The violent and dark ending is hard hitting, while Edward G. Robinson's performance is masterful in its portrayal of piteous illusion.

However, the only time my friend and I laughed was when the grandpa had a stroke during the power outage. The movie was so terrible that you felt embarrassed and sorry for the actors.
