GOOD HAIR Is A Good Time

So, Denise Franklin and I went to see Good Hair over the weekend.  (We had dinner afterward, and the conversation was similar to what you hear if you listen to us on Voices and Viewpoints except that I let her talk more than she gets to when we’re on the radio.)

I think we both liked the documentary, though Denise was more measured in her response than I was.  Basically, I think the movie is entertaining and sometimes quite revealing.  I wish there had been a bit more critical context (maybe even a few academics or public intellectuals providing some informed insights about how hair functions as an element of ethnic identity) and a bit less grandstanding, but I recommend the movie overall.
