Many Fans - Some Obsessed
30 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If this was made just to put another documentary under the belt of Jean- Marie Perier, then I probably would have given it a 2 or 3 rating. I'd like to believe that this is the story of true obsession. French writer Frederic Beigbeder like many writers, considers J.D. Salinger's Catcher in The Rye his biggest influence. The fact that Salinger is a recluse living in the backwoods of New Hampshire bothers Beigbeder to no end. He makes plans to attempt a meeting with Salinger, to express his love of Catcher in The Rye. Starting in France and working his way to New York, the writer interviews others who have been influenced by Salinger's work. Some come right out and tell him that he's making a big mistake in not honoring Salinger's right to privacy.

I gave this a 7 because of the history lesson we get along Beigbeder's journey. I learned quite a bit about Salinger from this film, from his life in New York to his quiet retreat to New Hampshire where he is protected by his neighbors who have adopted him.
