, sometimes referred to as the West Coast Woody Allen
,who was born with the name Albert Einstein
. This might explain why he changed his surname to Brooks. His movies are generally comedies
with a sharp satirical
edge and he is not above throwing in a fair amount of self deprecating one liners
here and there. His films include The Muse
, in which he plays a screenwriter afflicted with a bad case of writer's block
, Mother, in which he moves back in with his female parental unit in order to reexamine his relationship with her, and best of all Defending Your Life
, in which he dies and goes to a place called Judgment
City where 9 days from his life are replayed in order to decide his fate.
Comedian Bob Einstein, who is better known as Super Dave Osborne is Albert's brother.
