Review: “...a compelling and slightly disturbing look at obsessive musical fans”.
Repeat Attenders is both a compelling and slightly disturbing look at obsessive musical fans. American Christine has seen Cats more than 100 times and spent around US$20,000 on gathering the world's largest collection of memorabilia from the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical. Meanwhile, in Germany, watching Starlight Express transformed Bochum resident Gudrun's life, inspiring her learn how to roller skate, attempt to embark on a singing career and regularly dress up as her favourite character. While most of the subjects are good natured and happy, Mark Dooley's documentary also features a lengthy rant from a troubled man who claims Debbie Gibson's Electric Youth saved him from prison.
