Reviews
Mine: A fascinating film. Very interesting characters, portrayed by top notch actors as well as themselves. Makes me want to read the comic books it is based on. Paul Giamatti is a top notch actor. Really well written.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: An original mix of fiction and reality illuminates the life of comic book hero everyman Harvey Pekar.
