Aro Favourite Ghost World


USA 2001, 108 minutes
Dir. Terry Zwigoff
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama / Independent, Girl-centric, Youth

Topics: Rites-of-passage.


Aroview: Nothing to do with the paranormal, but everything to do with the anti-normal, this independent gem is a surprisingly endearing tale of two sneering teenage girls and the relationship that one of them develops with a much-older collector of antique records.

A sophisticated adaptation from his own comic book, writer Daniel Clowes taps the late 90s ‘zeitgeist’ and finds a perfect match for his gently-jaded irony in the impeccable ‘taste’ of non-conformist director Terry “Crumb” Zwigoff, and the beguiling form of Thora Birch, who plays the required sweet and sour to a tee.
