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

Ah, I waited more than couple years before I could see this movie again. Just couple days ago I finally discovered its name. After seeing it again wasn't disappointed at all.
"Ghost world" is a story about Enid - girl, who wasn't like the other teenagers. She is strange indie girl. And it's hard to say what's on her mind. But she's everything I like, with no lies or fake masks of "good". Sh... 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.

" Director: Terry Zwigoff His 3rd Movie My 4th movie watched from the director. A rightfully odd look at two friends trying to tackle life immediately after graduation and trying to figure out who they are what they want to be. The main character's development is effectively shown in strange and lovely scenes. Actually released the year I graduated yet it took me 20 years to actually watch it. Added to Lists: The Child Actors of my Adolescence - Thora Birch, Scar Jo Top Ten Performances -"
