BEING ELMO

BEING ELMO is a nice little documentary about the man behind the mask who created the current incarnation of Elmo. It's a really fascinating look at how a relatively poor kid from Baltimore moved up the ladder of success at puppetry to become one of the most famous characters in the world.

It's a feel-good story and a very well-made film, until the final third, where it starts to bog down with just too much saccharine. That section probably could have been better edited. But otherwise I highly recommend this film.
