A very good movie

3 years, 12 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

" American Splendor is a charming and quirky film which balances offbeat qualities with profound pessimism. It seems to accurately portray my attitude towards life which is uncommon in films and even more difficult to manage in a cohesive film. I don't adore this film, but I do identify with many of its characters. Watched on March 24th."

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 various artists in the circuits "underground", through which managed to be considered a cult author. A comic book brought to life and in turn moved to the screen with this film that stand out, above all, his apparent lack of limitations in the approach and how it is exposed at all times with absolute freedom, without any aesthetic or tie formal.
