Directed by the always inventive Michel Gondry and shot by brilliant cinematographer Ellen Kuras, DAVE CHAPPELLE'S BLOCK PARTY is smart and provocative. It underlines the point of Dave Chappelle's comedy: namely, to bring people together to speak openly and intelligently about daily life problems, social and political, immediate and historical. The film marks Chappelle's return to "public life" after his much publicized absence. Here, the comedian is back to form in energetic, insightful full force, at ease among people he likes and admires. And most, if not all, of the musical performances are excellent.
