Dave Chappelle's Block Party
from Film Forum, 03/09/06
Director Michel Gondry's last film—Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind—topped the 2004 Critics' Choice list at Christianity Today Movies. What does this imaginative, groundbreaking director do next? He films a documentary about a live-comedy/live-music event hosted by Comedy Central's ever-popular comedian Dave Chappelle.

At this writing, only one Christian film critic has turned in a review of Dave Chappelle's Block Party.

Christopher Lyon (Plugged In) calls it "an education in the diverse (positive and negative) sides of both Dave Chappelle and the rap culture. … The guy is funny, genuine and really hard not to like. That's especially true in this film when he's mixing generously with residents in his Ohio hometown and in Brooklyn, people with whom he laughs easily and treats with copious respect."

But the news isn't all good. "On the other hand, Chappelle also takes great glee in pushing controversial racial and political buttons, crafting crass scatological humor and swearing like a defiant middle schooler looking for street cred."

Mainstream critics have joined the cheering partygoers.
