Movie Reviews

An interesting and engaging documentary
Stokie Dave | 01/01/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"An interesting and engaging feature-length documentary about a large community of deliciously nerdy real nerds, people trying to express themselves outside of the traditional unproductive nerdish and fannish activities (collecting, dressing up, being unemployed and depressed). Real people, making real products. Technically it's quite watchable, although a little rough at the edges. There's _no_ wobby hand-held camerawork, but the audio is almost universally poor due to background noise - almost to the point of needing subtitles. In fact, one guy does get subtitles. There's a good handful of extras on the DVD, including longish edited outakes about zinesters moving into book publication, and the scene/zine shops/zine archive in Portland - both of these are just as interesting as the main feature. To sum up; inspiring, and it has the most amount of cuddly nerds you're ever likely to see on camera (until they make the documentary about vintage videogame collectors, that is)."
