Art School Confidential

The campy name of this movie caught my eye, so I thought I would share it with you.

It stars John Malkovich, Max Minghella, Jim Broadbent, Ezra Buzzington, Jesse Flanagan, Anjelica Huston, Joel Moore, Sophia Myles, and Ethan Suplee and is directed by Terry Zwigoff.

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.

I am an artist, so this movie has some interest to me , though I can't say I've ever heard of the comic.

The release date will be announced in 2005.

"Ok now pout and say You're my Daddy"

"No I'm talking about being IN John malkovich"

"John you look exactly like a young blonde in drag"

The association of John malkovich makes me think it will have some redeeming value to it.
