Overview

Angela Christlieb and Stephen Kijak, 2002, 83 min., video

Christlieb and Kijak's engaging documentary dives deep into the culture of cinephilia by examining the lives of five extreme movie fans in New York. "Film is a form of living," one subject declares; casting aside work and social interaction, these filmgoers believe a day not spent in a theater is a day wasted. Populated by opinionated neurotics and compulsives, this candid foray into obsession is a cinephile's ode to joy.
