Using previously unheard audiotapes recorded shortly after John Belushi’s death, director R.J. Cutler’s documentary examines the too-short life of once-in-a-generation talent who captured the hearts and funny bones of devoted audiences. Widely regarded as one of the greatest comedians of his–or any–generation, John Belushi’s life was cut tragically short when he was just 33 years old. His unique legacy is lovingly and thoroughly explored in this documentary that features archive footage and interviews with family, friends, and collaborators including John’s widow Judy, his brother Jim, “Saturday Night Live” colleagues Dan Aykroyd, Chevy Chase, and Lorne Michaels, filmmakers Ivan Reitman and John Landis, and many more.
