Bamboozled Review


Very Good
Welcome to a piece of American history. In the old music hall, white comedians and song 'n' dance men would splash their faces in charcoal, maybe throw on a pair of white gloves, then go through the step-n-fetchin' routine, the exotica and the buffoonery of perceived black culture. Jim Crow, Amos 'n' Andy, Mammy, L'il Black Sambo, Uncle Tom, and the Ten Pickaninnies were typical characters thrown on stage and screen for the amusement and mockery of white audiences.

What began as white actors in blackface evolved with the 1950s Amos and Andy Show on television, featuring black actors in blackface.

Beginning as a stinging, double-edged satire of stereotype exploitation, Spike Lee's racially charged "Bamboozled" slowly turns into a heavy-handed horsewhipping as it loses its sense of humor.

Intelligent, persuasive, scathing and certainly provocative, the picture is a pasting of upstart TV networks that pack their schedules with clownish urban sitcoms to build a woop-wooping, lowbrow fan base. With this film, Lee is asking just how far such degradation must go before it's recognized as being socially detrimental.

Damon Wayans (no stranger to blaxploitation TV) stars as Pierre Delacroix, an ostentatious, Harvard-educated "oreo" who writes for a WB-like network. Fed up with reprimands for writing "too white," he pitches a concept so offensive he hopes it will both prove a point and get him fired from this job he can no longer stomach.
