shows horrible truth

on 3/7/2013

It's got a lot going for it. First and foremost is a very impressive script. This impressive cast pulled off the overly pretentious attitudes that flood many art schools. They were witty yet cynical which made laughing out loud a requirement during the viewing of this amazing little flick.

ReviewSource ReelViews
Review For Art School Confidential, director Terry Zwigoff has re-teamed with Daniel Clowes for an offbeat and bitingly satirical look at the college era coming of age story. Considering Zwigoff's resume, which includes Bad Santa and Ghost World (based on one of Clowes' comic series), one should not expect Art School Confidential to be a cheerful romantic comedy/underdog overcomes tale. In fact, this is as dark as Zwigoff has gotten - arguably even darker than Bad Santa. And, while it's legitimate to label Art School Confidential as a "comedy," the movie is more clever than it is funny.

ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review It was written, like his "Ghost World," by the artist Daniel Clowes and based on one of Clowes' graphic novels. Zwigoff also made the great documentary "Crumb," about another artist who is entirely his own creation...There is something in the Zwigoffian universe that values such characters; having abandoned all illusions, they offer the possibility of truth. I also much enjoyed Broadway Bob (Steve Buscemi); his cafe is a hangout for the students, who hope he will hang their work on his walls. Bob at this point is more important to them than the art critic of the New York Times.

Quotes
J. Hoberman, The Village Voice ...replete with humorous detail...but it's the attitude that rules.
Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader ...inspired, fascinating, and revealing...
Michael Sragow, Baltimore Sun Intelligent and robust...exhilarating.
