Moore's Fall and Comeback
I, Dolemite Part IV: The Disco Godfather (2016)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

The fourth and final look at the film career of Rudy Ray Moore centers in on THE DISCO GODFATHER, the 1979 film that pretty much ruined his career due to it trying to do more preaching rather than going for laughs. Through archival interviews we get to hear from Moore who talks about what went wrong with the picture as we also get an interview with his biographer Mark Jason Murray who adds in more details about the various issues with the film. Also interviewed are Ernie Hudson, Jimmy Lynch, Nicholas von Sternberg, Arledge Armenaki and Ronald Raschke. If you're a fan of the film in question then you'll certainly enjoy this 25-minute featurette that goes over its production but we also get stories about how Moore's career pretty much went away after this movie and how the rap generation helped give him some new life, which led to more work and a new Dolemite movie. This final film in the series certainly does a good job at filling in various details leading up to Moore's death and it is a nice little tribute.
