This is a heavy, intense documentary about the life of Barry Crimmins. Both past and present - dark and bright - grim and enlightening.
Clever, beautiful, haunting
THIS MOVIE WILL SAVE THE PLANET. IT NEEDS TO GO VIRAL
Completely shocking. A man who suffered unimaginable trauma who didn't shrink into depression but spoke even louder and louder.
Documentary about one of the most underrated political satirist, the difficult transformation... good stuff...
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.

While the documentary has its strong moments, its absolute and unwavering adoration of its subject lead to some moments that feel forced.
Personal, funny heartwarming at times, obnoxious at others and shockingly painful at its best times, Call me Lucky is living proof that Bobcat Goldthwait gets better as a director the more personal he is. This documentary about Barry Crimmins - comedian, druggie, and all around no good socialist hippie takes a dark but deeply touching turn halfway through. Narrated by Crimmins and a cast of comedy luminaries from the 80s 90s and today, including Goldthwait himself this is a deeply personal film in both story and camerawork. Above all towers Crimmins in both his activist blowhard and deeply concerned peacenik modes, making him look like Bill Hicks and George Carlin's Activist Rage-baby at times while at others showing him at his most personal and personable.
A documentary on a difficult subject that squeezes laughs as well as tears out of the audience and a film worth watching.
powerful, powerful stuff that is hard to watch at times
well done doc, though the guy reminds me too much of the kind of people i cant stand talking to (or listening to bitch) so that kinda took alot away from me sitting through it.
