About:
A profile of legendary actor/comedian John Belushi.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
On John Belushi’s 30th birthday, he had the top TV show in SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, the top film in ANIMAL HOUSE, and the top record with THE BLUES BROTHERS. But his insatiable appetites and anarchic energy were fraught with danger. Filmmaker RJ Cutler (THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE) combines footage of Belushi’s legendary acts with rare footage and personal letters to his wife Judy to illuminate one of the great performers of the late 20th century.
