Rate this:
This documentary sheds light on the psychology and habits of excessive collectors. Retiree Ron has spent 50 years collecting garden gnomes, turning his home into an unofficial museum. Suffering from empty nest syndrome, Alice collects Reborns-lifelike baby dolls-and treats them as real infants. Captain Beany collects baked beans merchandise and identifies as a superhero, while Lori has transformed her living room into a shrine for more than 3,000 Barbi dolls. From vacuum cleaners to designer shoes, excessive collecting originates as an emotional coping mechanism and develops into compulsive behavior that takes over lives, finances, and households.
