**UPDATE: I just got word that "Good Hair" is opening in San Diego on October 23rd. Whew!
Chris Rock's new documentary about African-American hair is not coming to San Diego! According to Variety, "Good Hair" "is a raucous and rigorous inquiry into the subject of African-American hair -- the stigmas, the secrets, the shocking price of maintenance - that gets at universal but rarely discussed truths about black femininity." We San Diegans will never know if it's raucous or rigorous. We won't learn of the stigmas or the "rarely discussed truths about black femininity." Of course, you can always gain some insight by reading this. This is shameful, people, SHAMEFUL! Just take a look at what we're missing.
