One new-to-DVD/VOD documentary I’m interested in checking out is “Damn!” It’s not about my favorite expletive, but YouTube sensation Jimmy McMillan.
The founder of the political party known as Rent Is Too Damn High, the 64-year-old New York gubernatorial candidate McMillan seems like quite the character, being a Vietnam vet, black belt karate master, former stripper and 1970s soul singer. He became famous when his televised appearance on the 2010 debates went viral, with more than 2 million views in 24 hours.
A screener’s supposedly coming our way, so expect a review before too long. In the meantime, check out these three deleted scenes from the doc. In the first, he shares a sexual secret; in the second, he demonstrates “verbal judo”; and in the third, he shares his love for Eminem, marijuana and his favorite movie, which is ... um, “Deep Throat.” —Rod Lott
