Director Patrick O’Brien is “TransFatty,” a former NYC DJ and current online meme-maker who in 2005 was diagnosed with ALS and given only a few years to live. In this autobiographical account of his own terminal illness, O’Brien sharply and shamelessly documents his physically constraining, emotionally wrenching, yet ultimately life-affirming battle with cheekily stylish documentary execution and a healthy dose of all the heartbreaking, heartwarming, and impossibly hilarious moments that life has to offer.
