So Wrong They're Right (1995)


Oh man, this is a movie made for me. Russ Forster, the man behind the fanzine, "8 track mind" made a cross-country tour to interview a whole lot of enthusiasts who in this day and age still collect 8 track tapes! This film is a scream- I love those musicians that have a huge pile of roughly 30,000 of the bloody things, and they're like kids in a candy store when the camera is on. Every single person we meet is completely unique, and Forster never turns these ladies and gentlemen into goofs (unlike Alan Zweig's movie VINYL, about anti-social record collectors)- they are funny, personable, exciting. I'd have dinner with any one of them to discuss things like "Having Fun With Elvis On Stage." It is also a revealing look at a discarded piece of pop culture that we still have an affection for, and in fact in this age of information, many of these folks consider the act of snapping up these archaic things as an act of rebellion. Rock on!
