  1. A.B. II: The Return's rating of the film American Splendor

    I admire this film's non-traditional approach to the bio pic, and Giamatti gives quite possibly the best performance of his career. But, ultimately, the film left me cold. It's too obsessed to with the quirks of the characters to flesh them out as people, yet it doesn't go all the way with its unconventional aspects to work purely on a style level. It doesn't have much to say about Pekar away from the big moments.

  5. soymilky's rating of the film American Splendor

    Haven't read anything by Harvey Pekar, but this movie was entertaining on its own. I like how it switched between fictional Harvey and real Harvey. The depiction of R Crumb seemed a bit off though

  10. Mighty Quinn's rating of the film American Splendor

    The film's meta use of including the real Harvey Pekar to tell his own story was unique and refreshing, Giamatti and the rest of the cast inhabiting their roles perfectly. It has the wry humour and down-to-earthness of one of his comics, as well as a tinge of pathos, aided in part by the jazz cuts on the soundtrack. If you're interested in underground/alternative comics, this is a good movie to check out.
