I watched this purely because I am strangely attracted to both of the female cast members who star in the show. I was certainly not left feeling hollow or superficial at the end of the film though. What starts off as a happy and fairly aimless movie ends up as quite a sad and emotional tale.

I know nothing about the graphic novel on which this is based, but I have experienced first... read more

While I had seen Scarlett Johansson before in other movies, this was the first one where I had actually "fallen in love" with her.
I always liked Dan Clowes' comics. His work definitely subscribed to the idea of having a "style that was all his own". And for my money, this style fits in even more effectively in the medium of film than it does in the comicbook version of what is known as th... read more

A very good movie

After all those American Pie clones, we may have forgotten how it is to be in your late teens. Those movies may be entertaining (most aren't though) but they are most of time completely unrealistic. Ghost World is a wake up call and send you right back in the reality. I really loved it.

Enid must attend an art class to officially graduate high school as Rebecca gets a job.

"With acerbic wit, Terry Zwigoff fashions Daniel Clowes' graphic novel into an intelligent, comedic trip through deadpan teen angst."

“I am pretty sure that I was retarded up until this point for not having watched this. It honestly is one of the best teenager movies there has ever been created in modern cinematography, as far as I’m concerned.

Steve Buscemi and Thora Birch and Scarlett Johanson and all the rest of the characters are so dorky and awkward and adorable at the same time that I coud barely stand it. The cinematography, the old feel to it, the dialogues and the natural way the characters interact with each other just make it a wonderful movie. In no other movie have I seen apathy turned into something nice and so human as in Ghost World.

The mixture between the retro feel of the entire movie and the modern, if I can say so, attitudes that the characters have, is simply awesome and it kept” read more

Ghost World (2001)

“I thought a scathing story of teens of all types and at all irrelevant, since as the action takes place, are joining curious proposals and emotional density.

It is difficult to foresee what is going to end the relationship between the two friends when players are faced with the situation of having to start taking charge of their own lives after completing their studies. The changes that inevitably occur (new relationships, situations and social environment) test their apparently close ties of friendship and is at this point that the film delves subtle but very effective in the field of testing and even battle fronts everywhere representing any teenager.

If one adds that the film has its good acid humor, but humor-after all, you get a pretty powerful bomb fantastic direc” read more

"I relate a lot with Enid (the main character) and dispect of that, find the movie quite exquisite in it's own weird and lovely way. The art on it is pretty cool and the story is nice. Do want the comic books a lot right now."

"A cool indie film about a couple of young social misfits. This gimmick grows significantly weaker over time, but the retro style makes this a low-budget movie a worthwhile watch. "
