    Dustin Hoffman brings iconic `60s comedian Lenny Bruce to life in this landmark film that earned six Oscar nominations, including Best Picture. A jagged portrait of a man driven to mainlining honesty into the arteries of a hypocritical culture, Bob Fosse`s Lenny is an artful and unflinching biopic.

    From his first gig as a nervous Catskills comedian, it`s obvious that Lenny Bruce is a force to be reckoned with. Armed with a shocking routine and a stripper as his muse (Valerie Perrine), Lenny turns comedy - and America - on its ear with his abrasive and often offensive humour. But life in the smoke-filled bars of the comedy curcuit begins to take its toll. The drugs and arrests for his subject matter wear heavily on this maverick crusader... but don`t stop him from going to extremes right to his tragic and myth-making end.
