Margaret Cho: Assassin

Margaret ChoAssassinBBBB.5

(out of 5)

After two films (plus one that went straight to DVD) in which she revealed the difficult road towards accepting herself as a slightly overweight, pro-gay, bisexual, Asian-American woman in a straight white man’s world, has gone global with her latest stand-up comedy classic and it’s only gotten better. Reacting to the wave of conservatism that swept America at the onset of the Dubya years, Cho talks about gay rights, women’s rights and the taste of Laura Bush’s poonani in this frequently hilarious, constantly brilliant attack on narrow values and inhumanity of extreme right-wing politics. Filmed live in Washington, D.C. (for added effect), it shows the blossoming of this fantastic talent from painfully honest stage self-therapist to classy, confident modern-day philosopher.
