Fucky Film Review!

Ghost World

Posted by Web Manager on April 12, 2010

Terry Zwigoff 2001

An adaptation of the graphic novel by Daniel Clowes. Here at FFR, the waves of earnestness continue to pound at the shore. One of the things I like best about comics is that they inherently limit the amount of sophistry that the creators can engage in.  Everyone wears his or her heart on her or his sleeves (reversal of pronouns intentional).  This movie respects that convention without parodying it, but pays a price – don’t look for any surprises. This probably would have been great to see in the theater in 2001.
