Call Me Lucky is Bobcat Goldthwait‘s critically-acclaimed documentary dealing with the childhood rapes of comedian Barry Crimmins, and what he did to stop child predators on a national scale. It is “One of the most powerful and moving documentaries of the year,” “A truly beautiful human document,” and “An absolute masterpiece.” Initially funded by the late Robin Williams, Call Me Lucky received three standing ovations at its premiere at Sundance.
From boingboing: Call Me Lucky is a documentary in part about child rape. But it is also a work of extraordinary bravery. It tells the life story of comedian, political satirist, and peace activist Barry Crimmins, and his incredible transformation from rape victim to hero. And that’s not just clickbait.
