The story of a "community" of fun created by fans for fans
A tribute to the entertainment industry, a praise to pop culture and a hymn to fun, this is Funko, a company created by fans of music, cinema, comics, TV series, cartoons, television but above all the genuine and extraordinary, and why not even childish, sense of fun that can also come from a simple action figure made with love by fans for fans.
More than a company or a fashion, it is a community, a group of people linked by the same passion and the same hobby, collecting. Of course, a symbol of capitalist culture and consumerism and also considered, by those who are not part of it, a useless waste of money and as a collector fan I can only confirm that it is true but, as the documentary says through a funko fan (funko funatic), it's damn fun.
A documentary difficult to see in an impartial way, for people like me, that really excited me for his way of telling the story of funko not only from the point of view of who created it or from the rest of the staff but also and especially by fonds, collectors, those who have made it such an influential company and a brand so popular, through interviews that dig into their lives and how the funko has conditioned them and even, in some cases, improved.
To say the least interesting to find out how it works and how it was born and grown, by fans who love their products but who do not have many or know its history, this documentary was a way to get excited even more and in a deeper way and I believe it will allow other people to get to know this world and maybe even join it.
