Wayne White, has managed to get by TrustMovies all these years, even though TM was quite a fan of both White's wife, Mimi Pond, when she was a budding and then quite successful cartoonist maybe 30 years ago, and of Pee-Wee's Playhouse (for which White won Emmy awards for production design and puppetry) and its movie spin-offs.
BEAUTY IS EMBARRASSING, now streaming on Netflix, Mr. White and his recent art endeavors have quite a fan base, and so the filmmaker Neil Berkeley (shown at right) who directed and co-wrote this doc (with Chris Bradley and Kevin Klauber) in intent on showing us Wayne and his work, career, family, history and ideas as thoroughly as possible, given the time-frame of 88 minutes. Overall, he and his crew have done this pretty well. Mr. White has, shall we say, a rather strong personality, and while this initially charms and helps carry the movie along, after awhile it threatens to grow a little tiresome, as the man begins to natter on about how he followed his (and therefore you should follow yours) own dream and did exactly what he wanted with his life.
Netflix and Amazon Instant Video or -- if you prefer -- via DVD.
