Big Man Japan
2009
In this hilarious mockumentary, middle-aged Daisato (Hitoshi Matsumoto) -- a second-rate, third-generation superhero -- annoys his neighbors with the noise and destruction he causes on the job. But a heroic public image is the least of his concerns. Besides defending Japan from bizarre monsters, he must deal with an agent seeking to brand him with ads, a superhero grandfather with Alzheimer's and a family embarrassed by his incompetence.

Aaron Shurtleff: “It ruled.”

I think there is an inherent risk of misinterpreting a film from a foreign culture. This film is bizarrely hilarious, except the ending, which is just bizarre! Maybe you had to be there?! A mockumentary about a third rate superhero's trials. See it!
