Real. Raw. Redeeming. Difficult. Epic.
This story is powerful, honest, real, raw, and painful to watch at times (in the best way possible). Watching this man’s fall, and then see him stand back up is a refreshing look at redemption, and a step towards changing the stigma of addiction and alcoholism. I respect that Roy Tighe remained strong in filming Richard without stealing his bottom from him; Roy kept a boundary there which helped Richard in the long run. Seeing who Richard is now gives hope to those who are still sick and suffering from this disease, showing that there IS a way out.
The journey of a man from addiction to sobriety, and all that comes with that
This documentary depicts well how a man can be caught up in the turmoil that comes with addiction and completely unaware of how to escape from it, but with a lot of perseverance and the help and love of others can come out the other side. I had never heard of Richard Lett’s comedy before watching this documentary and haven’t had a chance to check out any of his stuff yet. The beginning of the documentary shows us a comedian who’s comedy is nasty in nature, angry at its core. Whilst personally I do often find this comedy entertaining, Richard Lett pushed it to its boundaries and often slightly beyond them. A comedian is always funniest when the audience is laughing along with them, and that is tough to do when the comedian is as angry as Lett is at the beginning of the documentary. Because of this, and due to not having researched the documentary much before watching, I thought that I wasn’t going to enjoy the rest of the film. However, before long the documentary shows how tumultuous Lett’s life is due to his alcoholism. He draws all over the walls in his apartment, is vile to friends and audience members. This is clearly all trying to escape the fact that he hates himself, something that the documentary depicts very well. After seeing Lett’s life fall completely apart, getting kicked out of his apartment and becoming homeless, we then see him addressing his alcoholism, which leads him to fix relationships with people, and to learn to care for himself. The end of the documentary we see the film makers return to visit Lett after 7 years of sobriety, and see him much happier and healthier than before, having a much more positive impact on those around him. The documentary perfectly captures all three sections of Lett’s recovery, in the depths of addiction, seeking and taking part in recovery and then down the line rebuilding his life. The documentary ends with a piece from one of Lett’s post-adiction comedy shows and shows us that he can be just as funny as he was in the beginning of the documentary, without hating on the world. More fascinatingly though it shows Lett as more of an artist than a stand-up comedian. Throughout the documentary we see Lett transition from textbook stand-up (man with mic pacing the stage), to singing a song when he finishes at the reovery centre, to finally building an artistic show. The boy that Lett described himself as, loving theatre and performing, is allowed to blossom by escaping his addiction and learning to love himself.
