The Unloved, Part 25: "Big Fan"

"The Unloved" kicks off 2016 with a truly unique drama, Robert Siegel's "Big Fan." A searing examination of obsession from the writer of "The Wrestler," Roger Ebert called the film "one of the more thought-provoking sports movies I've seen," and yet star Patton Oswalt hasn't headlined a film since and Siegel hasn't released a follow-up (although he's reportedly filming "Cruise" with Emily Ratajkowski). "Big Fan" felt like an unforgettable film for those who understood it, and yet too many movie lovers, as the video points out, failed to dig deep into this excellent work. Start off 2016 by correcting that oversight.

Rent or buy "Big Fan" on Amazon here.
