Gilbert

Post by Turdacious »

Documentary about Gilbert Gottfried. It goes over his development as a comic, the ups and downs of his career, his quirks and insecurities, and his family. It's really well done and endearing movie about a comic who has trouble taking off his mask or showing his emotions. Even at those emotional moments where documentaries like this can fall apart and get sentimental or sappy, the director does a great job of balancing it with Gilbert's humor. Pay the buck and stream it from Amazon.
