American Splendor

Some people know Harvey Pekar from his bizarre appearances on the old "Late Show With David Letterman." Some people know him from his "slice of life" comic book collaborations with Robert Crumb. But, in general, nobody's ever heard of him. That shouldn't stop viewers from checking out this highly original mix of fiction and reality illustrating the life of dyspeptic intellectual/cranky collector/neurotic cult artist Harvey Pekar. Think Crumb mixed with Ghost World and you're half way there. 100 minutes
