    Reader comments on American Splendor

    Subject: American Splendour
    Date: Oct 22, 2003
    Sender: SylviePrevious

    The first time I was drawn by the reference to Crumb. After the movie started Crumb and comic books ceased to matter. The script, the treatment and the soundtrack are wonderful. The character development is exquisite. Whether the "real" characters are "real" or fictitious doesn't matter -- the story could have been written that way -- showing us the comparison and contrast is a brilliant and deftly handled idea. (What's that phrase about being greater than the sum of its parts?--Well this film does that). American Splendour is the most fun "hang-out" movie I've seen since: "The Full Monty", "The Royal Tenenbaums", or "May Fools". I saw it 5 times in 2 weeks. I will see it again.
