- The life of a disgruntled file clerk.
- Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini
- MPAA Rating:
Finally a new comic book movie that doesn't suck ass. American
Splendor highlights the miserable life of Harvey Pekar, a disgruntled
file clerk who in the film is played by Paul Giametti(who does an
amazing job) and Pekar himself at times. Now you could be thinking
"omgwtf he's played by two people in the movie?" Don't worry, the way
they pulled it off is quite classy - I enjoyed it. The overall style
of the film was neat, I liked the use of the comic-book style accents
as well as the cuts where they showed drawings fromthe actual book
that reflected the scene you were seeing in the movie. All this topped
off with very cynical humor creates a definate cult classic. See this now.
