Los Angeles. I call it the city of bullshitters. This place sucks the life right out of ya. Some people pick themselves up after getting the shit knocked out of ‘m. Others break down like an old station wagon”. Right from the get-go, it’s pretty clear we’re in a different LA than in ONCE UPON A TIME… IN HOLLYWOOD. It’s a tough place where only the strong survive and well, Moose (John Travolta)… isn’t a tough guy. He’s an obsessive film buff and a rabid movie memorabilia collector, but his mental issues and lack of social skills make him an easy target for ridicule or worse. His luck seems to improve when he gets a chance to meet his idol, action star Hunter Dunbar (Devon Sawa), but he turns out to be… an insufferable prick who doesn’t want to give him his autograph that Moose, as his #1 fan, feels he’s entitled to! He will get that autograph though, even if it means stalking Dunbar to his house and eh, things get a little out of hand… Fred Durst, yes, of Limp Bizkit fame and yes, they’re on the soundtrack, based the film on his own personal experiences (which we hope were less extreme), and he offers John Travolta the opportunity to go all-fucking-out with a performance which reaches levels of Nicolas Cage zaniness. Yessir! Believe us: the cult of THE FANATIC is rising!
