The fact that I keep thinking about Moose, feeling sadness and empathy for him is a testament to JT's performance as he shows the innocence in this man's eyes and heart while doing horrible things. Only a great actor can pull this off and he does. He is chilling, scary and heartbreaking at the same time. If Dustin Hoffman and Tom Hanks can get awards so should Travolta. This is a super tough role to play and he does an amazing job, very committed. No one was attacking the Billy Bob Thornton's Sling Blade as a mentally challenged man so I don't see why The Fanatic should be criticized in any way. This movie make you seat at the edge of your seat, makes you think about social issues, and definitely makes you feel sympathetic towards Moose all due to great directing and superb acting. There should be awards here.
The story is inspired by a real-life fan who pursued Limp Bizkit's frontman Fred Durst many years ago, and the screenplay was written by Durst and Dave Bekerman. It follows Moose (played by John Travolta), who gets cheated out of meeting his favorite action hero, Hunter Dunbar (played by Devon Sawa). Moose then hunts down Dunbar to get the celebrity interaction he feels he deserves. Harmless at first, Moose's actions begin to take a dark turn. Against the advice of his friend Leah (Ana Golja), Moose begins to make frequent visits to his hero's private home. As the visits continue to escalate, Dunbar finds himself in increasing danger.
