- 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.
