STAR PULSE: LA FILM FEST 2014 - 'MORE FILM REVIEWS' / by chad walker

“I Am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story” – Frankly this doc was not even on my radar of flicks to see, but I’m so thrilled it was passed on to me as it turned out to be my favorite film of the fest thus far.  (And it’s in serious contention for my 2014 Top Ten List!)  The sweet, inspiring, uplifting and totally emotional tale (I shed tears!) of puppet master and performer extraordinaire Caroll Spinney who brought both life and innocence to such memorable Sesame Street characters as Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch is not unlike the man himself – an original. - 5 stars
