American Splendor

Watched American Splendor DVD.

My second viewing of the movie, I again loved how it mixed documentary interviews with acted scenes (the bulk of the movie), frames from Harvey Pekar's comics, on which the movie is based, the comics being based on his daily life. As with most second viewings, I noticed a little more, and this time had the ability to pause and read the comics that went by too fast the first time. I won't pretend to understand the graphic novel scene, only having flipped through a few and read through one, but I've liked what I've seen, particularly of the stuff that's a little more real than superhero or crime-fighting stuff.
