One also sees Rick through the eyes of his adoring fans. Cult following would not be the correct description... but faithful and maybe a bit obsessive. Heartstrings are pulled and one can't help but laugh out loud or maybe, more appropriately, giggle like a school girl alongside some of Rick true fans.
I honestly didn't know what to expect from this movie. I loved it! Enjoyable, fun, and very touching.
because I plan on producing one myself, but mostly because I always
found them fascinating. A friend suggested that I watch "An Affair of
the Heart", a doc about 80's pop-star Rick Springfield. While not a
die-hard fan like the ones featured in the film, I appreciated his
music and relevance at the time.
I have to say first and foremost, the film made me care about Rick; he
was forthright with his issues and demons and I feel he and the
filmmakers presented an honest perspective. At one point the film cut
to personal stories about people facing adversity and I was "what does
this have to do with Rick Springfield?", but that soon turned into some
of the most touching footage of the film. I know how important it is to
touch someone and have them resonate with you, and the film showed us
that Rick has compassion towards people and his fans...when they need
I thought the pacing was excellent, with the right amount of
interview/fan segments and concert footage. I was never bored and don't
think I picked up my tablet once during the film. Some of my favorite
segments were on the cruise ship with just Rick and his piano, pouring
out his heart. I met my best friend in an Elton John chat room on AOL
20 years ago, so I could relate to the Rick Springfield fans meeting
and bonding for life as well.
From a technical perspective, it was shot well...no shaky, amateurish
looking shots and the concert footage was excellent. The sound and
editing were top-notch as well and I appreciate all the work that goes
into a production of this magnitude. Great job!
The parts of the DVD with Rick are extraordinary. What I did not like were the attention put on "the die hard fans". Sorry but these women were bordering on stalker-ish. There was one in particular who is married with kids and is perfectly fine going off to see Rick on tour regardless of what upsets this creates for her Husband and kids. Her husband is obviously disturbed by his wife's childish behavior but she thinks nothing of it. This is the kind of reality tv drama that I could have done with out. I would love a DVD that just featured Rick now that would be more pleasurable for a Rick fan. :-)
