Cleveland International Film Festival

Rocky River Public Library is proud to support the film For Madmen Only
during the 45th Annual Cleveland International Film Festival.


FOR MADMEN ONLY | 2020  | Documentary | United States

Directed by Heather Ross

In this hilarious yet poignant look at the life of improv impresario Del Close, Heather Ross (Girls on the Wall) tracks this comedy trailblazer from his own sideshow act to his contentious rise at The Second City, mentoring Bill Murray, Tina Fey, and John Candy. Inspired by the semi-autobiographical DC Comics anthology Wasteland, the film delves into the inner workings of Del’s mind through inspired reenactments, archival clips, and interviews. The result is a lively, multi-layered picture of a man, riding on the edges of genius and despair.
