Harvey Pekar Vs. Alvy Singer

No, that's not a picture of me and my first girlfriend. We were much less attractive. It's Harvey Pekar (Paul Giamatti) and Joyce Brabner (Hope Davis) in American Splendor, arguably my favorite movie of the year. Jennie's too. It's quite funny, creative, well-acted, and with a soft underbelly of pathos to cleanse the palate. We highly recommend.

Anyhoo, there's quite an interesting article up in Slate today which compares American Splendor with Annie Hall. From Woody/Harvey's tastes in women to the manifestation of their agita at schmucks in public, the article is pretty darn on the money. Definitely a good read, and makes me resent that I didn't write it first. Bastards.

Obviously, I'm not trying to re-invent the movie blog wheel here. I'm just never lacking in opinions about movies, pop culture, news, and other assorted hoohah. And my mailman has put a restraining order on me, so here's my place to vent.
