This tightly edited, joyful documentary made me happy, as did watching the subject interact with the four or five kids who stayed up very late to meet him and his red furry friend. Kevin Clash’s story is inspiring, the notes of his career are pure nostalgia, and it’s a crime of serious magnitude that his documentary doesn’t yet have distribution. Some lucky studio out there has the opportunity to acquire the rights to a movie that will not only sell itself but that has the added benefit of real social value.
