  • There's raw humanity at the film's core. Much like with Crimmins himself, it just takes some extra work to see past the rough edges.

  • A labor of love that's more than merely that, Call Me Lucky is one of the few great movies to come out so far this year.

  • It's no wonder Goldthwait used his impressively evolving directing skills on his old pal Crimmins... Barry Crimmins deserves a documentary.

    October 30, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Crimmins proves to be a courageous activist, gifted artist and gentle friend ... and Goldthwait films him with the skill, love and dedication that his dear mentor deserves.

    September 2, 2015 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…
  • It's a wild ride for about half the movie. Then it becomes something else altogether. Being from Boston I was familiar with Crimmins' story, but I still wasn't ready for how deep the film cut.

  • "Call Me Lucky" lives up to the irony and accuracy of its title ...

Audience Reviews for Call Me Lucky

  • Dec 31, 2015
    The main reason I watched this documentary was because it was directed by Bobcat Goldwaite. In the past six years he has directed some truly amazing indie films, including "God Bless America," "World's Greatest Dad," and "Willow Creek." Though some of his narratives feel problematic, every one of his films unearths a kooky irony that deals with the human condition in a new, inspiring way. "Call Me Lucky," is Goldwaite's newest film, and it feels like the most personal one yet. Fellow comedian and icon Barry Crimmins is the subject of the film, and though you may believe that this will be a film about the hilarity of Crimmins' career, it becomes clear there's a more sinister subject at the film's heart.
