Chris Rock on his documentary 'Good Hair'

Posted on

One of the most purely entertaining Toronto films I saw was Good Hair, Chris Rock’s documentary (directed by Jeff Stilson) about the phenomenon of African-American hair: weaves, perms, relaxers, the whole works. For the uninitiated, there’s an annual black hair convention in Atlanta called the Bronner Bros. International Hair Show, an over-the-top spectacle where much of the film (in theaters Oct. 9) takes place, and where Rock and Stilson mine much of their comedic gold. In Part 1 of our OscarWatch interview, Rock and I talk about which interview subject turned him down, as well as some of the film’s most priceless moments.
