Chris Rock is a funny guy, but I have to admit, when I heard that he was putting together an expose on African-American hairstyles I wondered if there was something I was missing. Could this subject really support a feature-length documentary? Apparently it can. Good Hair received decent reviews at Sundance and has since been picked up for distribution by Roadside Attractions.
The official trailer has arrived online and it looks charming, albeit not completely hilarious. The film is hosted by Rock and directed by Jeff Stilson, a former writer and producer for The Chris Rock Show, The Daily Show and Da Ali G Show. Look for it in select theatres on October 9th.
