A very good movie

3 years, 2 months ago at Jan 31 12:59
Back in the 90’s, Paul Giamatti was one of those guys you would spot very often in a movie, always a supporting character, usually with a good performance but you never knew his name and the guy was simply and completely overlooked. However, it all changed with this brilliant movie. Indeed, for once, Giamatti had the lead and he completely rocked (a year later, he would finally seal the deal wit... read more

American Splendor (2003)

This movie develops a particular narrative about the life and work of Harvey Pekar, a comic writer who rose to fame after revolutionizing the landscape of American cartoonists and establish a model of alternative comics. Under the title "American Splendor", Harvey moved to its own existence bullets putting reality to fantasy and mediocrity to hope. And with that look sour and gloomy, was drawn by ... read more

Description: Harvey Pekar is file clerk at the local VA hospital. His interactions with his co-workers offer some relief from the monotony, and their discussions encompass everything from music to the decline of American culture to new flavors of jellybeans and life itself. At home, Harvey fills his days with reading, writing and listening to jazz ... (more)

"Katsottu: 26.11.2013 Enpä ole sarjakuvaa lukenut tai muutenkaan Harvey Pekarin elämään perehtynyt, josta johtuen aluksi elokuva ei meinannut toimia. Sarjakuvamainen ilme ja fiilistely oli kuitenkin tehty hyvin. Myös herran elämä vaikutti mielenkiintoiselta, kaikkine masentavine käänteineen. Pieni kiinnostus itse sarjakuvaakin kohtaan heräsi, josko sitä joskus lukisi muutaman lehden verran?"

"American Splendor was the perfect movie for a boring rainy evening. I even liked it more than the first time I watched it, I can't quite explain why, but it just fitted to my shape this day. The mix of fiction and the real persons about the story was very sweet and very well edited. Maybe I liked it more this time because I was aware of the concept about mixing up reality and fiction before and I adapted myself already to it."

"April 6 "Here's our man. Yeah, all right. Here's me. Well, the guy playin' me anyway. Even though he don't look nothin' like me. But, whatever." I really loved this movie. The characters are great, so was the story and I like how the real Harvey Pekar was involved in this movie. I also liked how they edited this movie to make it feel like a comic book."

" A very original and innovative picture. It's a combination of a fictionalized biopic, documentary, and adaptation of the comic book series "American Splendor", showing the inspiration for some of its stories."
