An interesting discussion for any fan of the genre
I'm not sure how interesting this would be to anybody who does not care for comic books, but this documentary/biography, which is basically a sit down interview with Kevin Smith (Clerks, Chasing Amy, etc.) interviewing Stan Lee, is something I found fairly fascinating.
Stan Lee is one of the guys who created Marvel comics, home of the X-men, Spider Man, the Incredible Hulk, Daredevil, etc.
It is really fascinating to see Stan's take on what all happened. The history of Marvel comics is told through Stan Lee's answers to Kevin Smith's very informed questions, you can feel the love for the craft and medium come through in the interview and overall, although it's just two guys talking in a comic shop, you can, at times, entirely visualize what it must have been like to be at ground zero for a pioneering art form that is still going strong today.
No matter what you think of eithers art too, they are both interesting folks, recommended for any fan of the genre or the movies inspired by the genre.
