The less you know about this going in, the better I think. There were tons of surprises for me on events in her life I didn't know. I went in not a Rivers fan AT ALL, btw. And I absolutely loved it. It's a deep look into her life and events around it, but on the show business industry as well. Certainly takes a bit of the glitter off as well. Very funny and very touching. I loved how through it all, even though Rivers does sort of sell out, she never is untrue to herself. She remains the same throughout, very honest and stirring. A real dynamo. One of my favourite takeaways from this movie is I think I 'get' her and her sense of humour much more than I did before. If anything, it adds a TON of perspective to your next watching of Comedy Central's Roast of Joan Rivers. It will be tough to sit through now that you now some of her tells on how she's feeling at that moment. Most certainly recommended. Far better than the Tyson documentary which I also liked. A must see. It's a powerful and moving film.
