The biggest story about Robert Townsend's Hollywood Shuffle is the story of how it was made. Like Spike Lee, Kevin Smith, and Robert Rodriguez, he financed it himself, putting the cost on his credit cards, begging for film stock, and taking years to to film it, grabbing scenes in bits and pieces as needed.
It shows. The movie is a bit rough and disjointed, but that adds to its charm.
It's wonderfully satisfying to see.
