In the early ‘90s comedian Patton Oswalt moved to L.A. to pursue his dream of being a professional TV writer and filmmaker. Soon after arriving he fell under the spell of the New Beverly Cinema’s retrospective series and began to devote more time to watching cinematic masterpieces than concentrating on his career. Silver Screen Fiend is an entertaining memoir of growing up, movie-going and the burgeoning alt-comedy scene, but is ultimately about learning to stop dwelling in the craft of others and learning to devote the time and obsession to your own.
