Great documentary about talented puppeteer Kevin Clash who performed the role of Elmo on Sesame Street.

The film is short, but more than makes up for its length with a plateau of behind the scenes footage, great interviews and a terrific subject. This is a must watch documentary and one that is quite entertaining for what it tries to do.
