But if you are heading out to the film fest today our pick of the day is Call Me Lucky directed by Bobcat Goldthwait. And if you only know him from his role in the Police Academy movies than you are missing out because he has made himself a well regarded director. After such dark movies like God Bless Anerica and Worlds Greatest Dad Goldthwait is back this time with a documentary.
Call Me Lucky is about Stand Up Conedian Barry Crimmins. Who is a very influential comic that not many have heard of. Goldthwait aims to change that with this documentary. Know for rapid fire political satire Crimmins launched the careers of many comics in Boston including Goldthwait. But the story is more that that and talks about Crimmins dark past and overcoming the trauma of childhood molestation.
Check it out today at 4:15pm at the Avalon theatre.
