He spots a Suspicious Character (Peter Stormare of Fargo, who also contributes the film's closing song) on the street and follows him.

There's not enough movie here to make this guy heroic.

The film is overflowing with charm and a genuine love for the connection a movie can have with its viewers.

A hopelessly dorky exercise in popcorn-munching reflexivity.

The movie is such a cute little charmer than it's hard to resist.

Fun "superhero" movie with a spoofish feel. Sisto, believes that he has an "audience" and that Stormare is his arch nemesis. His "antics" lead him to Meyer's who is his court appointed psychiatrist. The movie tries for a deeper meaning, with it possible that the "audience" is the soul or maybe the connection to god. Interesting movie overall, good for a lazy day.


i was amazed by how this movie played out.. i was a bit irked at first but stuck with it till the end and was surprised with the results... its worth watching but viewer beware, its not all that may be expected.
