Call Me Lucky, 2015 - ★★★★½

"...don't worry you'll laugh" - Barry Crimmins
Fascinating, funny and genuinely moving talking head heavy documentary by Bobcat Goldthwait, on motormouthed maverick political comic Barry Crimmins. Whose lack of trust in others made his humor ahead of its time, but it did nothing for his career as it left him agentless. And when we learn why he had that lack of trust... ouch. Made a powerful subject, hes a very funny, angry guy. That quote I used was his way of keeping his crowd from worrying too much during a really dark segment of his act, what a guy if he was from here in England I'd give him an knighthood, not sure what Americans alternative is but he deserves it.
