Confessions of a Superhero

This week's netflix streaming movie is a documentary called 

It is centered around the lives and careers of people who walk around Hollywood dressed as superheros and collect tips to take pictures with tourists. 

The most interesting character was Superman, a delusional middle aged man with an almost obsessive love for the figure, and his therapist fiancee. Yes, mental health worker fiancee. 

The other characters are the sweet Southern Wonder Woman, anger management problem Batman, and once homeless the Hulk. All are actors looking for their big break.  

The film goes on a little too long, but the still photographs that are shown and the composition of the interview scenes make it worth it. All the stars seem very honest, and whoever shot the film stayed out of it which I like. 

All in all I give it 3 1/2 glowing laptops out of 5. 
Good for a late afternoon lazy in bed.
