Looking for a great way to unwind after a hard day’s work? Exhausted your current Netflix queue? Well, we would like to introduce you to a neat website called SnagFilms seeks out compelling documentaries from established heavyweights or first-time filmmakers and makes them available for free for you to watch on their website.

Every month we’re going to share our favorite “somewhat-DIY-related” documentary from SnagFilms right here on Craftster. Here’s our first pick. It’s called Confessions of a Superhero. Not only is it fascinating and entertaining, but all of us DIY-ers here know that kick-ass super hero costumes don’t just come to you “off the rack.” There’s a lot of crafty-ness, skill, and love that goes into creating the perfect costume. (Anyone been to Comic-Con? Holy bejeezus, there are some talented costumers there!) For this and other reasons, we salute this documentary.

CONFESSIONS OF A SUPERHERO is a feature length documentary that chronicles the lives of three mortal men and one mortal woman who make their living working as superhero characters on Hollywood Boulevard. The Hulk sold his Super Nintendo for a bus ticket to LA; Wonder Woman was a mid-western homecoming queen; Batman struggles with his anger, while Superman’s psyche is consumed by the Man of Steel. This deeply personal view into their daily routines reveals their hardships and triumphs as they pursue and achieve their own kind of fame.

    I rented this film from NetFlix and found the stories of the super heroes extremely compelling. Some are living their passion as their favorite heroes and others are just trying to keep the dream alive to make it onto the silver screen.

  2. I will be watching this one after the kids go to bed tonight!!

  3. I hadn’t heard about this documentary until just recently, and now I want to see it. Kudos to the people who make those intricate costumes and try to make a living with them.
