DVD Review: Confessions of a Superhero

December 12, 2009

Confessions of a Superhero is a very interesting documentary about would-be actors making a living working for tips posing for pictures with tourists while dressed up like superheroes. The meat of the documentary follows Chris – who has been portraying Superman on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for over 11 years. Also on tap are a Batman with anger management issues, a former cheerleader now posing as Wonder Woman, and a former homeless man making the grade as The Hulk. The film lets the viewer into the lives of the actors – their dreams, their delusions, their successes, and their failures. It is a beautifully made film and well worth watching. 5 Stars
