Richard Brody on Norbit

Film critic Richard Brody, author of a recent, well-received 720-page book on Jean-Luc Godard, has now published his second piece in praise of Eddie Murphy's Norbit in The New Yorker. When the 10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition comes out in 2017, I hope the studio remembers to use this Brody blurb:

"a scintillating piece of psychodrama"

To be fair, I have not seen Norbit, but I have seen this and this (NSFHE*).

Brody's original review is here, but today's item is the keeper for me.

*NSFHE=Not Safe For Human Eyes
