As I near the end of my Year of the Bat project, it seemed appropriate that I give this a go. I had the bullet points of the Bob Kane/Bill Finger story, but not all the juicy details. This is an absorbing investigative documentary.
The main subject is Marc Tyler Nobleman. It's been his quest to illuminate Finger's legacy, so it's only fitting that we experience the story through him. He put in many, many passionate hours of research, cold calling, and campaigning. That being said, Marc is kind of an irksome subject. His cheesy charisma and false modesty wore on me after a while.
Between this, Too Funny to Fail, and Being Bond, Hulu has a pretty fantastic track record of releasing almost great entertainment-centric documentaries. And I'm not being sarcastic. That's a solid reputation to have.
