I'm closer now in age to Steve Buscemi's character than Thora Birch's, and Ghost World looks all the better for it. The first act, heavy in dark comedy, no longer delights me—I find it too misanthropic. But the rest of the movie puts it in soulful relief: it's a movie about getting passed an age where you think you're smarter than you are, and arriving at an age where you *feel* more than you snark. A beautiful film.
80/100 (Topluma aykırıysan yada biraz daha sert konuşacaksam ; Eğer topluma göre fazlaysan. Gerek zeka gerek vicdan olarak. Yanlızsındır. Filmi izlerken sık sık aklıma "Un Homme Qui Dort" başyapıtı geldi. Aynı yanlızlık, aynı marjinal bırakılma durumu. Bu insanlar marjinal değil, bence dünyadaki sahte insanlar fazla olmalarına rağmen marjinaller. Filmin eksikleri var ama görmezden gelinmeli.)
Glorified teen angst. Read selfishness when sanity proposed. Read unpleasantness when cool intended. Unlikeable characters displaying childish stubbornness and frigid inmaturity simply making the world a better place outside their rigid parameters. Zwigoff twists this bitter plonk to confuse and annoy rather than to please and enlighten unfortunately portraying the underdog in such a neurotic and narcissistic fashion
A strange and beguiling film. I didn't know the graphic novel it was made from, but can see in retrospect that the set pieces work like frames in a comic. Having seen the strips afterwards, it's uncanny how the girls are like their drawn counterparts, A great outsider movie....
Allowing for the universal truth that American movie teens are innately short on charm, (come back at me on this one!)this is a slow-burn, involving narrative with memorable leads and bit parts. Must try topless racist abuse shouting with a mouth full of beef jerky in a mini-mart. Best not, its messing with my values system. Love the discontinued bus guy and the art teacher.
