Great post, and the excellent documentary was once available on Netflix streaming but alas is no more.

One of my friends went to SFAI and Kuchar was kind of like a guru there. He played the title role in my friend's short film, which I believe was either the last or second-to-last film he was in. Also, my buddy's band wrote (before he died) a song called "George Kuchar, Can You Hear Us Now", which got its name from my friend's studio, which was right beneath Kuchar's.
