documentary

review by
Mike Haberfelner

By now, actor-writer-director-ptoducer Tyler Perry is a household name at least in North America, but his origins were rather humble, having been brought up in a dysfunctional family (to put it mildly), and having been inspired to write when watching the Oprah Winfrey Show - a sort-of omen since Perry and Oprah would work together on projects in years to come. Also, the first musical he wrote and produced, I Know I've Changed, initially bombed, and it took many re-works to turn it into a success. More musical plays followed, and eventually Perry's big screen debut with Diary of a Mad Black Woman, based on one of his plays and also the first movie featuring his on-screen alter ego Madea. The film was panned by the critics, but became a box office success, mainly because it tapped into an audience sector by and large ignored by the film industry, the older African American demographic. Madea became a recurring character in Perry's movies (with the actor himself playing her with relish, and the pattern would repeat itself pretty much every time, critics loathed but audiences loved the movies. Perry would extend his horizon though with writing for television, most notably his long-running series House of Payne, appearing in other director's films, also in dramatic roles, and even executive producing two time Oscar winner Precious in 2009, a film Oprah Winfrey also had her hands in ...

 

Now due to his recurring topics (mostly revolving around Afro-American living and also religious themes), Tyler Perry is a box office phenomenon rather restricted to North America - which makes this documentary all the more interesting for an European like me not really familiar with his work as it sheds light on the man's backgrounds. It's a bit of a shame that the film doesn't show more clips from his movies to familiarize one with Perry's work, but even as it is, and despite the fact that the film is a bit too celebratory about Tyler Perry and seems to black out all points of criticism, it's a pretty informative introduction to the man and his work for those uninitiated, while fans are pretty much bound to get a kick out of this one.
