Becky and I went to see Art School Confidential last week. The Yahoo Movie website at Art School Confidential describes the movie as follows:
“Based on a comic story in Dan Clowes’ “Eightball,” Art School Confidential follows Jerome (Minghella), an art student who dreams of becoming the greatest artist in the world. Arriving as a freshman at a prestigious East Coast art school filled with every artsy “type” there is, Jerome quickly discovers his affected style and arrogance won’t get him very far. When he sees that a clueless jock is attracting the glory rightfully due him, he hatches an all-or-nothing plan to hit it big in the art world and win the heart of the most beautiful girl in the school.”
Art School Confidential was a very strange flick to say the least. There are a whole cast of very odd art student type characters that fit the stereotype of what you would expect art students to be like. The whacky personalities and the situations they find themselves in makes for a pretty funny movie, but it’s not a movie for everyone. Most people would probably not like it because of the strange humor and cast of characters. You have to be in the right mood to watch this film and it’s definitely a rated R movie.
Still, if you like to watch a strange movie every now and then that has mystery, drama, comedy and is a thriller all rolled into one, then Art School Confidential is just the movie.
Becky and I both liked it, but we would suggest you wait for the Rental.
