Cinema Language’s review published on Letterboxd:
Aaaaand he does it again!
This was grrrrreat! Loved it! I mean no shit, but yeah!
This might not have the highs of Make Happy but I think it’s certainly his most complete special. The music is at its most refined, the comedy at its most uncompromising and him at his most unhinged. In a nutshell, this is essentially an 85 minute rant that slowly evolves into an almost cry for help - and you can’t help but go along with its perpetual insanity and chaos. Even if the vignettes don’t necessarily flow together as seamlessly as his tracks in his stand-up specials, it’s still an endlessly enjoyable roller coaster ride of Bo being Bo. His most creatively fulfilled and most personal project to date.
My Bo ranking:
1. Make Happy
4. Words, words, words
