American Splendor

Dir. Shari Springer Berman & Robert Pulcini (2003). This jazzy synthesis of Harvey Pekar’s autobiographical comix is clever, engaging, and cannily faux populist–complete with a tidily upbeat closer. The movie pivots on the confrontational appearances Pekar made on Letterman in the late ‘80s–just one of the ways his Underground Man doubles as his own press agent.
