With Great Power ...: The Stan Lee Story

A not-quite-Marvelous look at a pop-culture giant.


Documentary

Rod Lott
There's a great story surrounding Stan Lee and Marvel Comics. I know because a month ago, I read all about it in Sean Howe’s new book about the very topic. As for the documentary With Great Power  ...: The Stan Lee Story, however, it's perfectly fine if the only portrait you care to see is superficial, self-laudatory and largely wart-free.

Sleepwalk with Me

From A to Zzzz, comedian Mike Birbiglia’s account of his noctural disorder is a sleeper hit.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Early in Sleepwalk with Me, protagonist Matt Pandamiglio (comedian Mike Birbiglia, more or less playing himself) addresses via narration the feelings his character holds for his live-in girlfriend, Abby (Lauren Ambrose, Wanderlust) with the lines, “I think falling in love for the first time is such a transcendent feeling. It's like pizza-flavored ice cream: Your brain can't even process that level of joy.”
