Dan Spencer : The ‘Luck’ of Barry Crimmins

Describing the emotional potency of the documentary Call Me Lucky, directed by Bob Goldthwait, is nearly impossible without divulging its most heart wrenching revelation. What begins as a hilarious tribute to a relatively unknown comedian turns sharply into a gut-punching tale of child abuse and then leads to an inspirational finale. The Oscar-worthy film is visceral, funny, and moving on many levels.
