Difficult for me to imagine Scarlett Johansson NOT looking perfect. So I opted to take one of the beautiful pix of her from the film, as there were a few that were much less flattering. Same goes for Thora Birch. I love it when hot actress chicks have the balls to make themselves look fugly in movies. Guess that's kind of the point in this one... Ghost World is supposed to celebrate the world of geeks. And when Scarlett blossoms... to have a catch of that caliber, well, that's enough to crush a stud, let alone the snaggletooth vinyl collector and venerable sage geek, Steve Buscemi.
Terry Zwigoff directs. He's the same guy who did Crumb (here's the FilmBender review of Crumb). So you can expect this to be a film of the odd sort. The two uber-nerdy hotties are up to no good as they conquer boredom slacking their way into their first few months post high school graduation. Thora warms up to Steve. She wants some sexy time but doesn't quite know how to execute. Anyway, comic book fans, indie music fans, and Scarlett fans rejoice!
FilmBender is Funny Movie Reviews. Great movie with, obviously, great music too. There's this Indian 60's jazz/pop/dance song in there that I guarantee you'll be singing along with my the end of it. You'll sound like a freak. Maybe you'll fit in. But maybe you're just a geek.
