Bathtubs Over Broadway

I gave this documentary a chance because of its perfect score on rotten tomatoes.  I expected it to be funny and light and a good watch.  What I didn’t expect is that it would be fascinating and ultimately incredibly moving.  I completely associate with Steve Young (side note:  the fact that he sounds like Waylon Smithers is very gratifying) in that I find – on a much smaller scale – discovering lost stories to be endlessly fascinating.  I didn’t expect to have tears in my eyes during the final scenes.   This was an absolute gem.
