The cinematography is good; as well as the depth of the topic. Dialogues are not cliché at all. The only problem is that the main character is a loser beyond comprehension and sympathy. His reasoning mechanism, as well as his character is too extreme to believe. I have felt sorry for US fans if they are this much of a fanatics, but this kind of addiction to a team is beyond something I could understand. And I don't want to understand, because he has nothing positive to offer to most people, as I said before he's beyond sympathy, no one could see a part of himself in him therefore will always stay as an outsider to the movie.
This might very well be a prime example of fine film-making but that doesn't make it enjoyable to watch. Every year's Academy Awards nomination list is full of films with "stories that need to be told" and "fearless performances that demand attention", but in the main I watch movies for enjoyment, and if I must learn something it better be important.Watching Big Fan all I learned is that there are a lot more sporting die-hards out there, and that some take their obsession way too far.The story is simplicity itself.A normal everyday man in his late 30s (?) named Paul lives and dies by the success or failure of his sporting team, (in this case the New York Giants). His entire life revolves around following the team, predicting the outcome of future matches and playoff positioning, and trashing the unfortunate supporters of other teams who dare exhibit similar passion for other clubs.(I know some of these guys in real life. Hell in some ways I am parts of th…
Big Fan stands as a profound and thoroughly remarkable character study marked by a magnetic performance of Patton Oswalt. He excels as Paul Aufiero, a life-long fan of New York Giants being brutally hit by one of Giants' top players in a strip club. Oswalt is equally sympathetic and believable starring as this deeply troubled character. His performance is the chief, but thankfully not the only reason to see Big Fan. Writer-director Robert Siegel regards the sports fanaticism as an addiction and that gives his film the necessary gravitas: its power and its credibility. The script is devoid of clichés with many well-observed situations thrown in and several ingenious twists you won't see coming. As a result, you observe Paul falling into decay with great anxiety combined with care. Siegel crafts a subversive comedy, funny and bleak in equal measures. It also works as a peculiar take on the pathology of sports mania.
