so close to reality it hurts...,
This review is from: Ghost World [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
ghost world is a fantastic movie. thora birch was the idea actress to play the lead role. i feel that this movie speaks volumes to the countless directionless people wondering around in this world that always fails to live up to its expectations. its intelligent perspective leaves the veiwer with a lasting sense of the films cynicism (or should i say just realism?) and the ending is quite honestly its biggest triumph as the nameless place she leaves to on the bus somewhat implys two things 1) no matter where you go it wont make any difference 2) isnt this essentailly what we are all doing when we think were moving on? just going to another place to make no diffence? a complete postmodernist cynical masterpiece that echoes with far more truth and watchability than any saccerine sweet hollywood epic ever could. a slap in the face for all deluded veiwers with no shock tactics except the truth.
