'Call Me Lucky': Bobcat Goldthwait's Revealing and Surprising Documentary

A powerful force in the early careers of comics such as Bobcat Goldthwait, Barry Crimmins has led an unusual life.
Publish date:

Comic-turned-director Bobcat Goldthwait chose the fascinating Barry Crimmins as the subject of his first documentary, Call Me Lucky. Crimmins, a powerful but rarely noted force in the early careers of comics such as Goldthwait, Steven Wright and Marc Maron, among others, has had a very unusual life, going back to those early days in comedy, but even less well known facets of his life before and after that period make for a compelling story. 

In the interview on Moveable Fest, both filmmaker and subject speak about the reasons for making Call Me Lucky now and about the process.

Goldthwait tells Moveablefest.com's Steven Saito, "When we got into editing, Jeff Striker, the editor and I realized that a lot of the things Barry said on stage really help [the movie]—he becomes his own narrator, which was great because I like the absence of a narrator in a movie."
