Filmmaker Ben Steinbauer went searching for the man behind the rants. Against all odds, Rebney manages to emerge with his dignity intact.
December 10, 2010
Perhaps the most disturbing issue raised in Ben Steinbauer's fascinating and often hilarious Winnebago Man has to do with the Internet's awesome ability to reduce complex and apparently dangerous behaviour to the level of banal spectacle.

Steinbauer doesn't shy away from the moral queasiness of that arrangement, and that's what gives Winnebago Man a lot of its appeal -- that tension between the considerable laughter it provokes and the questions raised about that laughter.

A shrewd, entertaining, fascinating and surprisingly touching documentary.

Absorbing and thought-provoking.

The film is less about Jack, his reputation and performance, than it is about itself. Real or not.

What makes the film so enjoyable is how it keeps defying expectations in its survey of the rough edges, sharp mind and iconoclastic personality...

When the director laments, "I feel like I've stepped into the Winnebago Man outtakes," we can only concur.

Although we find out a lot about this virtual hermit and develop an admiration for his cantankerous principles, the movie leaves some questions unanswered.

The film lacks a point of view, but it sure establishes the catharsis in watching a guy speak his mind with brutal, $#&* #&% honesty at all times.

Winnebago Man becomes a much more interesting and troubling film when Rebney, a former journalist, demands to reclaim control of his messaging.

Entertaining, but Steinbauer never really seems to work up either a cogent thesis statement or tack of inquiry -- his work bears the marks of a serial noodler.

August 6, 2010
An often funny and finally poignant documentary about the bizarre nature of modern fame (indeed, infamy) and the healing powers of community, human connection, and, yes, laughter.
