Movie Info

Damn! is the the story of Rent is 2 Damn High founder Jimmy McMillan, a Vietnam veteran, black belt Karate master, former stripper, and 70's soul singer, who became an overnight sensation after his appearance on the 2010 New York gubernatorial debate went viral, receiving over 2 million views in 24 hours and lifting Jimmy from political obscurity into the international spotlight. In what becomes an unforgettable journey, Damn! is the only film to ever capture the rise of a viral sensation and the media fixation that follows as it all unfolds. It's a sometimes funny and sometimes dark look into what happens when mass media, politics, and money all descend upon the life of one man. -- (C) Official Site


Critic Reviews for Damn!

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (7)

Even at 73 minutes, the film is, well, too damn long.

Top Critic

The movie is padded with repetitive media appearances, fan videos, and the ramblings of a subject who may not have a firm grasp on reality.

McMillan comes off as a perhaps-delusional opportunist determined to make the most of his 15 minutes in the spotlight.

By the end of this smart, subtle film by Aaron Fisher-Cohen, you realize that it's actually a deft look at flash-in-the-pan fame and the emptiness at the heart of it.

Damn! would be a more insightful condemnation of the exploitation process if it didn't reek so strongly of exploitation itself.

Damn! clearly knows a thing or two about fameballs, but it leaves the rest of the heavy lifting to the viewer.
