Art School Confidential

Director Terry Zwigoff and comic book creator Dan Clowes reunite once again (after the indelible Ghost World) for this colorful graphic novel adaptation. The film introduces us to a cast of oddball characters, all inhabiting the titular world of art school. Max Minghella, Sophia Myles, Jim Broadbent, Anjelica Huston, Ethan Suplee, Steve Buscemi and John Malkovich certainly make for a standout indie cast. Unfortunately, the broad and ultimately insubstantial script is so busy snidely lampooning college-age poseurs, artistes and druggies (plus throwing in a random serial killer for good measure) that it doesn't offer many likable characters to root for. 102 minutes R.
