OK for the ultimate Chuck fan, but.......
13 February 2005 | by (Olympia, WA) – See all my reviews

My only problem with this documentary is that it spends way, way, way, (did I mention way?) too much time on his many super-lame and/or super-pseudo-intellectual fans. I consider myself a big fan, have all of his books, have all of them signed from the two times that I went to readings, have seen Fight Club a sick amount of times, and can't wait for Survivor, but still feel embarrassed watching this documentary (which I've only watched twice) because of all of the otherwise seemingly illiterate Chuck readers. The makers should have spent more time on actual footage of...hmmm...Chuck Palahniuk instead of his fans who seemed like Fight Club was the first book they ever picked up and probably couldn't spell his last name correctly if their lives depended on it. But, all of that said, the actual footage of Chuck is really good.
