Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work

Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work is a fabulous documentary focusing on an amazing woman.

Joan Rivers' humor is showcased, and I don't think I ever appreciated how funny she is. She is brilliant.

But what made this documentary so riveting is the force of her personality: she is powerfully driven to perform, and puts absolutely all of herself into her career. And its an incredible self. She is wise, angry, truthful, self-aware, and unafraid. These qualities, combined with a genuine vulnerability, made this feel like an important and touching film about a fiercely unique artist.
