If you just couldn't get enough of the eccentric Jimmy McMillan, the gloved wonder who ran for governor on the singular issue that the rent is just too damn high, then you are in luck.

DAMN! is a feature-length documentary chronicling the story of "Rent is Too Damn High" party founder Jimmy McMillan, a Vietnam veteran, black belt karate master, former stripper and 1970’s soul singer. The film is a finalist at the Little Rock Film Festival and an official selection at the Brooklyn Film Festival. It will be released on August 16.

McMillan became an overnight sensation after his appearance on the 2010 televised New York gubernatorial debate. Footage of the debate went viral, receiving over 2 million views in 24 hours.

Director Aaron Fisher-Cohen documented McMillan throughout the entirety of his campaign for governor of New York, and the events directly following his loss of election. And now you can relive them in full color on the moving pictures screen.

Everybody gets their 15 minutes, we guess. And some get a little more.
