Ghost World - Truth and Decision

Let’s go back in time, shall we? Lets go way back – to when Thora Birch was still getting decent roles, ScarJo was just starting out and seemed well, less glamorous and more teenager-ish, and Steve Buscemi had not risen to the heights he would in Hollywood. 191 more words

Ghost World (2001)

Two friends endure the trials and tribulations of high school graduation.

Devil Got My Woman

By Jeff Broitman

Terry Zwigoff’s Ghost World inhabits an America that really doesn’t exist anymore. Made in 2001, it creates a very specific universe that our characters live in, and vividly presents the exhaustion of growing up too smart for your own good. 785 more words

by Ian Mason
