Ghost World is one of my favorite movies. Enid and Rebecca remind me of my best friend and I in high school. In some good ways (and some bad ways), Enid reminds me of myself at certain points in my life. (Sometimes, it is like reliving my high school and early college experience.) Though the movie leaves me feeling conflicted after each viewing, it is still one of my favorites. The movie makes me think...and I like that...it doesn't happen often these days when I sit down and watch a film!
One of my favorite commentaries is on the culture of generic self-help/therapy that appears within the character of Enid's art teacher. Every on-screen encounter with her is too funny! Just the whole movie is such a valid analysis of what has become of our culture in so many ways.
Thanks to James for sending it my way a couple of years ago!
