Reel Review #17: “Better to be King for a night than schmuck for a lifetime.” This film is a favorite of mine, and one that surprisingly few people have seen. A terrific film that was way ahead of its time in its examination of the cult of celebrity. Once you meet Rupert Pupkin you won’t soon forget him. Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro team up again in The King of Comedy.
