Pelk is a video store employee with an encyclopedic knowledge of film and film history. Trouble is that's all he knows (he even has a zero-hit website devoted to film reviews, film history, and comparative film theory). He drives everyone around him nutso. Employees. Store patrons. Passersby on the street. No one is immune to Pelk's social ineptness. And dark days are headed his way. He's fired from the video store and is forced into a job at an auto-parts warehouse where he continues his film history harassment to anyone within earshot. But then he runs into Niko (Tyler Gannon, THUMBSUCKER), a funky artist who takes a strange liking to Pelk. They meet. They go out. And Pelk becomes enraptured to the point of stalking. He's so infatuated with her that he masturbates daily into his bathroom sink while staring at her picture. Obviously this isn't going to work. When Niko's old boyfriend shows back up, Pelk is on the outs again and has a meltdown. He tears up his little apartment and falls back into more masturbatory behavior ...only to have his phone ring. On the other end is a newspaper editor who wants to do an article on him and his website. The FILM GEEK becomes an overnight success, his website gets massive hit numbers, and movie-goers comment on his accurate film assessments. Even Niko comes back to him ...or does she?

If you or someone you know is an uber geek about anything, is socially awkward, or lives in / has lived in Portland (it was filmed there) you'll probably find something to appreciate in this movie.

Thoroughly entertaining funny and warm. Not quite as predictable as you might think, at least not until about the halfway point or so, then you pretty much "know," but... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Colonel Kurtz

Very good character study with a lot of humor that works. We all know someone like this and maybe it is us.Published 4 months ago by Tom Willett
This might be the kind of humor that appeals to some people, but it is not my brand. I felt too sad for the character to laugh.Published 9 months ago by Paul A. Byrnes
