Call Me Lucky
The influential career of Barry Crimmins as a stand-up could warrant documentary treatment on its own, but when you add the outspoken comedian’s public battle with AOL and the Catholic Church, fueled by being a victim of child abuse, you have a truly compelling tale. Accomplished filmmaker Bobcat Godthwait — yes that Bobcat — is a long-time friend of the ornery comic and understands how to navigate between Crimmins’ wise-cracking charm and his fiery rage. It was that rage that the comedian pointed at Internet service provider AOL when he discovered just how little they were doing to stop the rampant child porn sharing in their chat rooms, becoming the unexpected voice for the voiceless. Call Me Lucky is flawless in its ability to have you in stitches with laughter immediately after filling you with white-hot rage at the social injustices that plagued, and in some instances still plague, our society.
