  4. 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.

    By the end I wasn't sure I liked him as much as I respected him. Even then I wasn't sure how much I respected him. But it's certainly an interesting film. 3.5/5

  20. orangey's rating of the film American Splendor

    depressing, but uplifting in the same time. plus it manages to say more about the American ' nobody' without resorting to Bukowski's vulgar machismo

  21. sandracine's rating of the film American Splendor

    Excellent bio of Pekar's life; Giamatti wears his persona like a second skin, Hope Davis establishes her character as the loving, patient, yet independent woman he marries. Crumb seems to take Pekar's contrary demeanor in stride, allowing for their beloved comic to take shape. A favorite..

  22. Midnight Cowboy's rating of the film American Splendor

  23. T. J. Harman's rating of the film American Splendor

    rewatching this years later, after getting into the comics..I still like it... it's a love letter to Pekar's work but it's a little too meta for the material at times and the "comic panel" motif misses the point that American Splendor was a comic book by a guy who didn't like comic books (mostly). The actors deserve the praise they got because the pressures of having the real people in the movie had to be pressing.

  24. Polyglot's rating of the film American Splendor

    James Urbaniak is a pretty good Bob Crumb.
