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

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. Anyway, I really loved the damned thing. Indeed, after all those American Pie clones and other weak and underwhelming high-school comedies, we might forgot how it was to be in our late teens. Those movies may be entertaining (most aren't though) but they are always completely unrealist... read more

Set in the summer after graduation, Enid and Rebecca are both outsiders in a world slowly being engulfed by fake 50's diners and Starbucks. Enid must attend an art class to officially graduate high school as Rebecca gets a job. When the two play a mean joke on a much older, geeky record collector, Enid finds a fellow soul and begins to discover the complexities of becoming an adult in the modern world.

" First, let me say that while I had seen Scarlett Johansson before in other movies, mostly her more independent work, Ghost World was the first one where she had truly "stolen my heart" (which is saying something considering that her role here is of someone who really isn't all that nice). Now I always been a big fan of Dan Clowes' comics, mainly because his work definitely subscribed to the idea of having a "style that was all his own". When it comes to the so-called "alternative" genre, f"

My movie year 2016 (633 movies items)

"26.2. (Teatteri/35 mm) Ghost Worldista opimme, että ihmisen etsiminen seuranhakupalstoilta on noloa. Alku jäi duunin puolesta näkemättä, mutta filmiin oli silti helppo päästä sisälle. Pidin yleisestä ilmapiiristä ja eritoten taiteen käsittelystä elokuvassa. Tervetuloa, Guggenheim."
