Mac users are a strange and loyal bunch… I know this firsthand after writing my own account of having a Mac die on me, only to get flooded with angry responses by a throng of Apple devotees (you can read the whole story on my personal blog). In some sense, I can understand where all of the enthusiasm comes from; Apple has always been about sleek designs and innovative technology, and there’s a consistency and unity of vision in most of the things they do. That said, some people just take things a little too far!
MacHeads is an upcoming documentary produced and directed by Kobi Shely about the hardest of the hardcore fans. It sounds like a great subculture to cover in a documentary, and the trailer confirms that there some real nutjobs out there. However, if the movie chooses to cover the history of Apple and the company’s role in the personal computer revolution, I think there’s an interesting story to be told there as well. One thing’s for sure… this movie’s got a pretty huge built-in audience who are already chomping at the bit. Check out the trailer below. For more info visit www.macheadsthemovie.com.
