This now-classic documentary about a loose knit clan of filmgoing obsessives in New York City celebrates its 15th anniversary in 2017 and, to mark the occasion, a special tour of a 35mm print is being arranged. The Brattle is excited to be the Boston area stop for this sometimes hilarious portrait of extreme cinephilia.
“What Christlieb and Kijak do so well is keeping these folks from not seeming like loons.” – Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
“I know people like these, and I understand their desire to be absorbed in the darkness and fantasy.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
“Crisp, intelligent documentary film.” – Stephen Holden, New York Times
★★★★ “NO WAY!!!… It’s like My Big Fat Greek Wedding for our crowd, better entitled My Big Fat Movie Obsession.” – Film Threat
