Bamboozled

Movie Summary

Director:
Spike Lee
Released:
2000
Rating:
R

Bamboozled is a biting satire of the latent racism that exists in the television business. Pierre Delacroix (Damon Wayans) is both a highly-educated African-American and the only black writer for the Continental Network System. When his loutish boss, Thomas Dunwitty (Michael Rappaport) instructs Pierre to make a show about African-Americans, Pierre reacts by creating the most outlandish show possible. Hoping that his incredibly racist show will get him fired and give him the opportunity to pursue work elsewhere, Pierre creates a program where the actors perform a minstrel show in blackface. To his horror, the show is a massive hit, and Pierre becomes a celebrated personality in his own right. His horror quickly diminishes, however, as he begins to enjoy the comforts of fame. Not everyone is so happy, though, and Pierre must soon face the real possibility that his moral compromises have put him in a great deal of danger.
