Chris Rock's Hair Gets a Theatrical Run

The Sundance Film Festival documentaries are finally (emphasis on finally) lining up theatrical runs and the latest one happens to star comedian Chris Rock.  His film, titled Good Hair, is directed by Jeff Stilson and examines hair culture in the black community.

You might think this documentary is a frivolous waste of an audience's time, but investigate Chris Rock's reasons for making this film and you'll see why this could be one of those great documentaries that makes you laugh and think at the same time.  It also helps that it happened to win Special Jury prize in the U.S. documentary category at Sundance.

Good Hair hits a limited amount of theaters in early October.  In the meantime, head over to Punchline Magazine to see a trailer.
