Past Event

If you're the sort to go see Cinemania at a repertory theater 15 years after it was first released, chances are you're not unlike the film's subjects. Angela Christlieb and Stephen Kijak's documentary follows five of New York City's most devoted cinephiles in what ends up being more a portrait of obsession than a celebration of movie magic. They arrange nearly every aspect of their lives around screening schedules, with some partaking in low-fiber diets that ensure their enjoyment of rare archival prints won't be interrupted by trips to the bathroom. Perhaps it's time for a Los Angeles–set spinoff/sequel?
