Bobcat Goldthwait’s exceptional documentary on Barry Crimmins hits August 7th


By now, you’ve heard us rant and rave and rant and rave some more about Bobcat Goldthwait’s exceptional documentary on comic Barry Crimmins, Call Me Lucky. While we’re still a few weeks away from its August 7th release, MPI has released the film’s full official trailer. The two minutes and change offer a solid glimpse of the film and introduce the brilliant and uncanny comedian in all his glory. If anything, you’ll get a hint as to why we’ve been calling it one of the year’s best films — if not the best.

The emotional rollercoaster of a film spends 106 minutes breaking down the tumultuous life of Crimmins, whose uproarious career as a politically outspoken comic in the ’70s and ’80s eventually led to an awe-inspiring turn as one of this country’s most vital and underrated political figures. Goldthwait cleverly unravels the man’s triumphs, trials, and terrors through a series of hilarious and tear-jerking interviews by Lenny ClarkeKevin Meaney, Jack Gallagher, Patton Oswalt, Marc Maron, and more.

Book it now: Call Me Lucky. August 7th. Be there.
