A scary combination of narcism and (I think), Asperger's. Possibly some OCD as well. And bipolar disorder. Of the 21,000 negative thoughts that the average person has in one day (according to Biker Fox), I figure that in his case, 20,000 of those are caused by his behavior that so riles up other people. I met Biker Fox briefly. At that time I knew nothing about him. Yet my "spider sense" was tingling. Now I know why.
Comments on the filmmaking: I liked the use of native American music during certain scenes — usually when he's riding. Also how when Bike Fox is going off on one of his "woe is me" tales, the camera is not on Biker Fox, but a cicada, or a raccoon. I especially liked the juxtaposition of his rant with the defensive raccoon on the bright green background. I think for me, that was the highlight of the film.
Biker Fox is funny, sad, angry, and sharp. It's going fishing and there's a tug on the line and you scrabble to reel it in and you've hooked something extraordinary and unexpected. The bigger picture is one of persecution for being different, of being brave enough to let your true self off its leash to run wild and unabashed in a field where that kind of thing is frowned upon. But this movie is also the portrait of a changed man, of a person who challenged himself to be his ideal self and succeeded, which is not an accomplishment most of us reach. And what is most fascinating about his journey there and rewarding to watch is that he achieves it by finding peace and humility in exercise and nature. For as loud as Biker Fox is, it's this quiet that sticks with you after. Compelling and unforgettable.
Biker Fox is brimming with life, and tells us what it means to be alive. This movie takes us a break from the conventional humdrum of rehashed media scripts to give us something fresh, which is to make a fantasy out of our realities and to overcome all obstacles to be alive, rather than to be merely a shell of a human being.
