"There are no dirty words, only dirty minds." - Lenny Bruce

What the Critics are Saying

"A skillfully researched documentary about the late pop hero." - Los Angeles Times

"Fred Baker's film is honest enough to include Lenny at his most offbeat."
- Richard Corliss, Village Voice

"Evidence of what made Bruce such a singular phenomena on stage and what turned him into a counterculture hero." - TV Guide Online
