What a painful film to watch. This was my first exposure -- I seem to recall that there was a film some years ago when I was younger, about Lenny Bruce, and this was not it. It was clear that his edge was gone -- he didn't pick it up until the very end of the performance. But altogether, it seems to prove that the man was an honest man, a performance artist, not a sleaze.
