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

Short but Sweet Commentary on SciFi/Fantasy Fandom
16 July 2001 | by (Midwest USA) – See all my reviews

Mr. Bruce Campbell's documentary is both a voyeuristic peek at the wide spectrum of the fandoms of Science Fiction & Fantasy media and a commentary of the importance of the fan/artist relationship. We see behavior at conventions, there are interviews with actors (Ted Raimi)and theatre owners and the fans themselves. There are the extreme fans who go to any length to look and act like their favorite characters. There are the mild mannered ones who just go and collect memorabilia. Mr. Campbell explains the necessity of the fans, at the same time expresses a desire to keep the relationship "balanced", not too close, but not distanced. Mr. Campbell is an accomplished actor and author. His love and concern for his fans show through in this brief glimpse of his reality. A real treat for anyone who recognizes himself or a family member in this commentary-or just wants to see Bruce in action!
