One of the top 5 comedies of all time IMHO...
Some cinematic geniuses remain so through their entire life. Some, it comes and goes. Some complete a masterpiece and never again return to that level.
Only one, however, actually forgets how to be a genius 85% of the way through one of his movies -- and you can actually witness the exact moment it happens -- never to recover.
I'm not sure I get this 85% reference.
I liked Blazing Saddles when it came out and I was young. I tried to rewatch it about 5 years ago and couldn't get through it. Brook's masterpiece is The Producers which is definitely a top 5 greatest comedy along with the number one Some Like It Hot.
