If there was ever a film that dove deep into the nebulous trenches of uberfandom, Fred Durst’s third feature film, The Fanatic, certainly achieves its goal. From the outset, the film challenges viewers on what it means to gauge the subject matter, through the perspective of the often overlooked, downtrodden and mentally ill, principally in the city of Los Angeles, or as Leah (Ana Golja) calls it, “the city of bullshitters” where “everything breaks down eventually”.
Dazzler Media is proudly releasing The Fanatic on Digital June 8, and on DVD July 6 in the UK. The film signals the latest entry from Limp Bizkit frontman, writer and director Fred Durst (The Education Of Charlie Banks), and actor John Travolta (The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, Pulp Fiction) front and center.
