  • anarresti's rating of the film Alter Egos

    This can be a good screening companion for 2010 Super. What the earlier hero deconstruction had in rage and paranoia, this one has in a weird lay back, slow tone. Both seem to be about the fan, comic con-ish hero world and what fantasising about alter egos tells you about yourself, more than about what heros mean, at large - which is the theme of works like Watchmen. Nicely done. Fun enough. Super is better, though.
