It's no small achievement to turn Pekar's stubbornly dull comic book into not just a 3-act narrative, but a very compelling one at that. Pekar's comic was a series of vignettes kidding itself that even the most banal experiences merited an audience, but with Our Cancer Year banality disappeared & Pekar's life took a turn towards the unusual. He's a relatable curmudgeon whose complaints are funny & even insightful.This would make a great comic book misanthropy trilogy with Crumb & Ghost World.

This is a gripping movie that takes a not likable character and makes you route for him. Depressing but enjoyable.

Perhaps the part that Paul Giamatti was born to play. Relatable, touching and full of very cool touches that make it stand out from other biopics.

An inventive biopic that alternates between film, documentary and animation, American Splendor depicts the life of a working class stiff who parlayed the quotidian details of his humdrum existence into an influential comic, transforming his life in the process. Like Crumb, it's a portrayal of an artistic outsider that is refreshingly free of romantic sentiment; Harvey is not a pleasant man, and the film doesn't hide the unsavoury aspects of his personality. Giamatti is terrific in the lead.

Having already loved Crumb, this Biodoc hybrid worked well for me, in all its forms, be it Giamatti's acting, Pekar showing up as himself, Urbaniak's portrayal of Crumb being on point and the Letterman interviews.
