Yesterday I was fortunate enough to see the wonderful documentary about Kevin Clash, "Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey." I saw it at a small art house in Ft. Lauderdale; and besides me, there were 4 people in the audience. But this is no indication of the quality of this film.

If you have the opportunity to see this film, I highly recommend it. It is a very well made documentary and focuses on a truly brilliant artist. It also provides some insights into the Muppets and their creators. I'm not ashamed to say that I teared up at a few points during the movie. Some parts were extremely touching.

Anyway, I'm sure most, if not all, here will enjoy it immensely.

I just watched the trailer too and it does look like it would be something enjoyable to watch.

The link didn't work for me, but it was easy to find just going to Amazon and looking for it. I'm saving my link, so that I can order it when it comes out, or sometime after the holidays anyway.
