Harvey Pekar lives the life most of us dream of avoiding, a filing clerk by day, a man at odds with, and lost in, the world he inhabits the other sixteen hours. Harvey begins to write down his disgruntled observations and with the help of equally cantankerous illustrator, Harry Crumb, ‘American Splendor' is born. This movie of the man's life is an inspired mixture of animation, documentary and dramatisation, with Paul Giamatti finally getting a role worth his talent. Funny, sad, sharp and hip to be square.
