Ghost World uses dark and sarcastic comedy to penetrate and drive home an uplifting message about being unique and simultaneously accepted. The film's offbeat performances are driven by one of Steve Buscemi's best performances and a pre-fame Scarlet Johansson.

Whether you consider yourself an outsider or not, Ghost World will leave a mark on you. Characters drive the story, and the casting is inspired. It's a unique and wonderful film.

This is a great movie that I can watch over and over again. It has a very unique style all of it's own. There is definitley no other movie out there like this one. Anyone who has ever felt like an outsider will enjoy this movie.

One of the great modern movies about idiosyncrasy which is a topic I've always been fascinated with. Zwigoff handles this eccentric comedy which excellent care.

"Ghost World" by Yojimbo

Two friends endure the trials and tribulations of high school graduation. Based on an indie comic book, Ghost World is one of those self-consciously "cool" character studies that almost bursts a blood vessel in its attempt to be effortlessly quirky. The main character played by Thora Birch is one of those "offbeat" heroines with a teen angst hatred of the world, but like people like that, she is also a bit like a black hole of self superior snideyness that kind of makes you want to slap her. The few laughs there are come from the supporting cast, including an amusingly observed new age art teacher and especially the nunchuck wielding redneck whose brief appearances basically steal the entire film. Steve Buscemi is easily the most sympathetic character and within him lies an interesting me...

Ghost World: A World of Brilliance

Terry Zwigoff brilliantly brings Daniel Clowes' satiric graphic novel to screen and creates what is one of my favorite films of all time. Everything about this film is absolutely perfect. The characters and plot are executed so effectively in Zwigoff's direction and in the brilliant script that he and Clowes wrote together that the film itself makes you wonder why more films aren't this great. The added bonus is, of course, a cast that truly captures the essence and humor of their characters while still making them starkly real and relatable.

The cast is led by Thora Birch as Enid, the wise-cracking high school graduate who isn't sure where her life is headed. Birch's performance speaks volumes about her character. It really is a shame that she hasn't been as prominent in Hollywood as...
