heads up for movie night
Art School Confidential
Appeared at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival
The creators of GHOST WORLD, cartoonist/screenwriter Daniel Clowes and filmmaker Terry Zwigoff (CRUMB), return with a dark and subversive portrait of art school as a hotbed of ego, pretension, insecurity and phoniness. Max Minghella plays Jerome, an earnest young student who flees the suburbs for Strathmore Academy, a renowned institution situated in a rough New York neighborhood. Among the characters he encounters are a life-drawing instructor (John Malkovich) obsessed with his failed career and a washed-up former prodigy (Jim Broadbent)
Tonight at 10pm on Sundance. It could suck, but worth checking out.
