CGiii Comment

It starts off, light and fluffy - and then, Zwigoff gingerly takes us on an increasingly darkening journey.

His use of this music is astounding - it speaks where words are utterly unnecessary - few directors can recognize these special places.

Clowes deserves acclaim as the script is, in places, inspired. He, politely, gives the finger to the absurdity of the art world - intentionally riddling his script with delightful clichés and stereotypes.

Fine construction and a beautiful thing to watch.


The(ir) Blurb...

Jerome, a kid from the suburbs who loves to draw, goes to New York City's Strathmore College for his freshman year as a drawing major. Competition and petty jealousy consume faculty and students, with an end-of-first-semester best-student award held out as a grand plum. Worse, a strangler is on the loose, killing people on or next to campus. The idealistic Jerome falls in love with Audrey, a student who models for life-drawing classes and who responds to his sweetness. But he has a rival: the clean-cut, manly Jonah, also a first-year drawing student, whose primitive work draws raves and Audrey's attention. As cynicism seems to corrode everything, Jerome is desperate to win.
