Criticwire lists "Call Me Lucky" as part of The Top-Rated Movies of 2015 So Far

On our list of the year's best documentaries, the new addition this week is Bobcat Goldthwait's "Call Me Lucky." A profile of comedian Barry Crimmins, the film traces the performer's legacy through the testimony of those that he influenced. Some might be split on how the film structures the unspooling of the details of Crimmins' personal life, but the way "Call Me Lucky" ties the comedian into the culture of the 1980s shows how he helped lead the way for the politically inclined stand-ups of today.
