movies i heart ~ american splendor

 

american splendor is a cute little indie movie based on the life of the late harvey pekar, a working class american guy who turned his life story into a comic book of the same name.  the movie switches between fiction, with paul giamatti starring as harvey, and real-life with the actual people the characters are based on giving their insights.  when you see the real-life sections, you realise what an amazing job the actors have done to become their subjects right down to the voices.  my favourite character is toby, the genuine nerd, played wonderfully by judah friedlander. please check this movie out.
