Call Me Lucky Regissert av Bobcat Goldthwait

Anmeldelser fra kritikere

In theory, it shouldn’t be a spoiler to mention that Crimmins was a victim of childhood sexual abuse; it’s something he’s discussed publicly at length, and it fuels his deep-seated anger about abuses of power, especially where kids are involved. But Call Me Lucky treats this information like a big plot twist, withholding it until roughly the film’s midpoint… Absurdist satire is one thing; a real person and his real pain deserve a less crass, commercial approach.

Keeping its tone light for the most part, Call My Lucky doesn’t delve into the details of how child abuse is or is not prosecuted in our legal system or how much child porn is now purveyed online. Instead, it reminds us of how much can be accomplished by just one person with a big heart, a big mouth, and a relentless commitment to a cause.

When Call Me Lucky actually accompanies Crimmins to revisit the basement where he was raped, the resultant gawking and sense of forced intervention lays bare how ill-equipped Goldthwait is to make poignant sense of these difficult revelations, much less reconcile Crimmins’s complexities as a presence and thinker.
