Damn Good Job On This One
11 October 2012 | by zack_wallSee all my reviews

I remember seeing Jimmy McMillan hit the news a few years back during the Governor race in New York, and I remember that he became quite a hit. And then, just as quickly as he arrived to the popularity scene, he was gone. But like most people, I didn't know the whole story until I saw this documentary on Netflix. Aaron-Fisher Cohen does a brilliant job filming this guy, and Damn! has become one of my new favorite documentaries. This film takes you on an amazing journey alongside a nobody's rise to fame and fortune, while then subsequently documenting his massive ego boost that ultimately ended up being his undoing. As someone in the arts and entertainment business, this film is perfect for when I need a dose of reality to help me remember who I am, and that fame, or the perception of fame, is unimportant. What's important is who you are before you become big, and it's truly unfortunate that Jimmy lost himself. I highly recommend this film. It's a nice little piece that you'll likely watch again and again. I tip my hat off to you, Aaron Cohen, you've done a great job with this movie.
