Nominated for a 2024 Producers Guild of America Award, Albert Brooks: Defending My Life is an HBO documentary from Oscar-nominated director Rob Reiner (A Few Good Men) about his best friend – comedian, actor, and filmmaker Albert Brooks, who has been a major force in American comedy since the late 1960s. 

The star-studded documentary features the likes of Steven Spielberg, Judd Apatow, Ben Stiller, Larry David, Jonah Hill, Conan O’Brien, Tiffany Haddish, Alana Haim, Sarah Silverman, Chris Rock, Jon Stewart, Sharon Stone and more. 

Albert Brooks: Defending My Life has a 97% critics’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with CNN hailing it as, “a warm and wonderful trip down memory lane for those who know Brooks’ work, and a grand introduction for those who don’t.” 

As The Daily Beast put it, “Watch the new Albert Brooks doc and laugh your ass off.”
