Aroview: CRUMB dir. Terry Zwigoff and comic book icon Daniel Clowes (GHOST WORLD) re-team for this darkly set, though often hilarious stakeout of the art school world, full of pretentious know-it-alls, beatnik clichés, perpetual drop-outs and over-ambitious underdogs.
Max Minghella is brooding as the angst-ridden Picasso wannabe seduced by an attractive nude model (Sophia Myles), torn by his inability to break through artistically while other less talented students hit all the right notes. Bittersweetly grafting the intellectual and creative pretension of art schools moulded with an ironic cast of marginalised characters, Clowes' sardonic world view of the mainstream and conformity is offset by such outcast arty-farty types as John Malkovich's has-been art tutor – albeit, mockingly this time around. With Steve Buscemi as the gallery owner, Jim Broadbent as the drunken washed-up artist, and Ethan Suplee as the deranged, Kevin Smith-esque film major with indie stardom in his eyes.

5 stars (Exceptional) Often overlooked gem from the noughties! Clowes/Zwigoff's faux light twisted tone gives a type of American Kabuki for true grit and madness of art-world R-complex cliché and in-jokes. See Malkovich having fun with "academic rhetoric-artiste" trope. ~Dr_'n'
