Documentary
This is a warm, funny look at comic and movie geekdom, using the annual San Diego Comic-Con convention as its centerpiece. Morgan Spurlock directs (but does not appear) in this look at the convention that has grown into a yearly, sold-out extravaganza of happy nerds. Spurlock focuses on a few people and their journeys through the convention, including a couple of comic-book artists, a costume designer and a comic-book salesman. It’s a lot of fun seeing how things work out for each of the subjects, and there’s a cute wedding proposal featuring Kevin Smith to boot. The film features a host of great interviews, including Smith, Eli Roth and Joss Whedon. After watching this, I’m a little sad that I’ve never attended the damn thing. It looks like a lot of fun.
