Storyline

Fanalysis, a light-hearted documentary at what makes a fan a fan - and why. It is a cool glimpse into the world of Bruce Campbell, why he loves his fans, and how he approaches dedication that sometimes borders on insanity. Even if you don't know who Bruce Campbell is, it is a great film to see if you have ever been a fan of anything. Written by Anonymous

I'm definitely glad I'm Rhenish
3 May 2013 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Like most everybody I'm also a fan of something and some people, so I definitely do understand people going a long way or doing their utmost for the admired person. Yet the world of conventions seems to me the most bizarre thing I've ever come across. Watching this documentary I begin to wonder if to some people movies, TV-shows etc supply a sort of heightened reality, that nevertheless is pretty real to them and sadly enough more real than their real lives. So instead of having a life and simply entertaining themselves or getting inspired watching a movie etc, this movie etc becomes their life. This is the one side and Bruce Campbell does his best spotlighting it and it's remarkable that he lets and gets these people to talk for themselves. Then there is of course the other side the person who is admired and who sort of has to put up with it. Strangely enough this person seems to be the most lonely person at times because people do not actually want or dare to communicate with him or her. But then who wants to talk to an idol, simply to find out that this idol is just a human being like you or me?!

In the end this documentary - and this reaction may seem odd - made me glad to be Rhenish and that there is carnival over here and that I can get dressed up as whatever I like at least once a year.
