Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey

Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey ★★★★

A nice film about a nice man. I hate to use the word 'heartwarming' but this is a really positive and upbeat documentary about the value of doing something you love. It's a bit of a character study of a unique and highly creative young mind who, with support and guidance had completed the circle to inspire, support and guide subsequent generations of wonderful oddballs like him. The film suffers a bit from an overly mawkish musical score which tends to smother moments of genuine emotion but that's a small price to pay for what is otherwise an excellent documentary.
