‘Larry and Me’ | Short Film Review


Larry King

In this 13 min short, Herb Cohen shares the memories and life shared with his best friend, Larry King. Herb had known Larry for 75 years back during their youth in queens. We get a tour of Larry and Herb’s old stomping ground by Herb, narrating the memories playing in his head for the camera. This could feel like a short YouTube video showcase of the two, but what ‘Larry and Me’ end up being is a love letter from one friend to another who has passed on, and is quite moving in its short runtime.

If you have a few minutes, this packs an emotional punch. It’s very personal and you feel that throughout. I loved learning more about the man behind the microphone and desk and being told in such a loving way makes this a good watch.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.
