Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work

Rated R 84 minutes 2010

Piecemeal documentary look-see into the daily life of the irritating septuagenarian female stand-up comic yields moderate insights, and we’re happy to part company after an hour and a half. One thing we can conclusively say about Ms. Rivers: She doesn’t know the meaning of the word “quit.” Or “enough,” for that matter. As if by sheer force of will, she’s outlasted almost as many of her comedic contemporaries as the late Bob Hope. The sight of her puffy, collagen-injected kisser is enough to make us swear off drugs forever. Directed with similar terrier-like tenacity by Ricki Stern and Anne Sundberg (The Devil Came on Horseback) 84 min.).
