  American Splendor

Last night I saw the movie "American Splendor". All I new going into this movie was that it was a movie about some loser who writes a comic book called American Splendor, and that a complete freak that I worked with thought that it was the best movie from last year.

As it turns out, this movie is a true story about a man from Cleveland, OH named Harvey Pekar. The movie is a combination of actual interviews with the real characters, acting (the part of Pekar was played by Paul Giamatti. Also know as “Pig vomit” from the movie Private Parts.), and comic book illustrations.

Harvey is a very strange man with no sense of humor. He worked at the same job for most of his life. A full-time file clerk at the local VA Hospital, where he had worked since 1966.

Harvey Pekar is best known for his autobiographical comic book series "American Splendor", a first-person account of Pekar’s shitty life. The series has been published on an approximately annual basis since 1976. In 1987, Pekar was honored with the American Book Award for the series. Dark Horse celebrated the 25th anniversary of "American Splendor" in 2001 with a special issue. "American Splendor" is illustrated by high-profile artists such as Robert Crumb, Frank Stack and Joe Sacco.

Pekar began his writing career as a prolific music and book critic. His reviews have been published in The Boston Herald, The Austin Chronicle, Jazz Times, Urban Dialect (a paper native to Cleveland), and Down Beat Magazine, among many other journals. His critiques are available on the Internet at numerous websites and dispersed amongst personal homepages from his devoted fans. Pekar also collaborated with his wife, Joyce Brabner, on a book-length autobio comic "Our Cancer Year" (Four Walls Eight Windows).

My wife and I thought it was a great movie. I highly recommend a viewing.
