'JUDAH FRIEDLANDER: America IS THE GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE UNITED STATES': Four Stars (Out of Five)

The new stand-up performance documentary feature; following comedian (and actor) Judah Friedlander, as he performs stand-up comedy at various different venues. As you can probably guess by the film's title, most of the comedy in the movie is political as well. Friedlander also wrote and directed the film, and it was released by Netflix through their streaming site. I don't usually overly enjoy stand-up comedy flicks, but this one is pretty funny. I really enjoyed it.

The feature is filmed all in black-and-white, in a very low-budget basic style. The camera shots are all of Friedlander, from about 10-feet away (at what would be an audience member's point-of-view). His jokes deal with imperialism, Donald Trump, and other political and human rights issues. They're mostly told from a very satirical, exaggeratedly patriotic point-of-view too (and they're mostly hilarious as well).

I'm becoming a big fan of Judah Friedlander; I've loved him in comedic horror flicks (like 'FEAST' and 'SHARKNADO 2: THE SECOND ONE'), but I hadn't seen any of his stand-up comedy before this. I have seen him on political news commentary shows that I watch (like 'THE YOUNG TURKS' and 'THE JIMMY DORE SHOW', my favorites), so I also knew I really agreed with most of his political views. That's what actually encouraged me to watch this film, and I definitely wasn't disappointed by it. Like I already said, I don't usually like stand-up comedy movies even, but this one is hilarious. I definitely recommend it.
