Scott Niswander explains how Scott Pilgrim's flawed characters unlock a profound depth to one of cinema's most entertaining comic book romps.
The beloved cult classic Scott Pilgrim vs. The World seems to have a problematic reputation. After all, its characters...kinda suck. But that's what makes them great. Scott Niswander of the YouTube video essay channel "NerdSync" sits down with Larry to explain how the film's flawed characters and strong themes unlock a profound depth to one of cinema's most entertaining comic book romps. We also discuss how the film creates its own unique cinematic language in bringing its source materials' panels to the big screen.
