Confessions of a Superhero
Confessions of a Superhero is a feature length documentary chronicling the lives of three mortal men and one woman who make their living working as superhero characters on the sidewalks of Hollywood Boulevard. This deeply personal view into their daily routines reveals their hardships, and triumphs, as they pursue and achieve their own kind of fame. The Hulk sold his Super Nintendo for a bus ticket to L.A.; Wonder Woman was a mid-western homecoming queen; Batman struggles with his anger, while Superman’s psyche is consumed by the Man of Steel. Although the Walk of Fame is right beneath their feet, their own paths to stardom prove to be a long, hard climbs. Confessions of a Superhero explores the fascination, obsession, and allure of fame through the eyes of some very unique people struggling to make it in Tinseltown.
Interesting flick. If I ever wanted to see a movie that would make me feel better about what I do. . . this might be it! Worth putting on your NetFlix list.
