Storyline

This documentary began as a simple examination of the fan lifestyle in America, what it became is something much more than that. Our film follows Gordon, an idealistic young man from a small northern California town who has been invited to meet the celebrity he admires the most. Like anyone would, Gordon is caught up in the excitement of such an opportunity. What happens along the way is not so simple. Faced with the pressure of meeting a person he has admired for so long, under the constant watchful eyes of the documentary crew, he begins to fall apart. Gordon begins to slip out of sanity, until he is completely adrift in fandom... Written by Nicholas Tucker

Amazing film!!
3 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

Fandom truly caught me by surprise! I didn't know what to expect going in, but I laughed out loud, I gasped out loud, and cried (not so out loud). A very bittersweet kind of movie that I've been trying to explain to my friends, but you just have to see it to understand the impact it has. I would tell anybody and everybody to check out FANDOM if you have a chance. I don't want to say too much about it, and give it away, but there are some unexpected twists and plot turns. Gordon and his family are such great characters that they keep you in stitches throughout the film. The director and cameraman also play a part in the movie, and have some of the funniest moments when they comment on the odd nature of Gordon and his actions. Don't expect to be only laughing though, because poor Gordon goes through a lot in this film. Great job to the filmmakers and cast!
