Wow!
23 August 2000 | by (Slovenia) – See all my reviews

When I watched the Academy Award ceremony I had no clue what was this movie that got the Best Documentary award. A couple of weeks later, on an idle Friday evening I was surfing through the channels and something had just begun on Discovery. The title was King Gimp. It sounded familiar. So I watched. It soon came to me, that this was the movie from the Oscars.

I was touched. I cried. It was a very intimate piece of work and the Oscar was certainly well deserved. Bravo to King Gimp!
