You will leave this film remembering that Joan Rivers is one very funny woman (albeit a vulgar one). You will also see her as a woman of great strength, a true show biz survivor. Full Review

3.5 stars out of 4 -- She remains one of the funniest, dirtiest, most daring and transgressive of stand-up comics, and she hasn't missed a beat.

It's interesting, it's funny, it's heartfelt, it's heartbreaking, and it's dirty. Everything Rivers wants to be known for. Full Review

[A] stirring portrait of indomitability....A queen of comedy who won't and shouldn't abdicate.
Wall Street Journal

Rating: B+ -- A Piece of Work is a refreshing look at a reluctant legend, one who's still using all her might to break barriers for the rest of us to get a real kick out of. Full Review

Rating: B -- Welcome to the on-screen psychoanalysis of Joan Rivers, of which she seems equal parts willing participant and antagonist. Full Review

Rating: 4.5/5 -- Dying this past September, Rivers failed in her longevity goal, but has left a legacy of unforgettable comedy that was never afraid to piss people off even as they howled till their sides split. Full Review

Product Description:

Joan Rivers launched her career as a standup comic in the early '60s, a time when female comedians were few and far between, and after several years of working nightclubs to unresponsive audiences, she was booked on THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON in 1965 and soon became one of the most successful comedy acts in the nation. Since then, Rivers has hosted several TV talk shows, written best-selling books, directed a feature film, launched a line of jewelry, and kept up a busy schedule of personal appearances, determined to hold on to her stardom regardless of the fickle winds of show business. Filmmakers Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg followed Rivers through a typically eventful year in her life, and in JOAN RIVERS: A PIECE OF WORK, they offer a look at the woman behind the laughter as she struggles to stay in the spotlight, works on new material, launches a one-woman show in the United Kingdom that doesn't fare as well as she hopes, takes a chance as a participant on a reality TV show, and ponders her career in show business at the age of 75. JOAN RIVERS: A PIECE OF WORK received its world premiere at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.
