I just saw Art School Confidential, by locals Terry Zwigoff / Daniel Clowes. I really liked it.
You know what was awesome, is both the leads, judging from the behind-the-scenes footage, are English. They have accents when they speak; yet in the film they have very American voices. Kudos! I kind of want to watch it again now.
I am a sucker for Dan Clowes; I own a whole bunch of his comics. My favorite is “Like a Velvet Glove Cast In Iron,” which I usually describe as sort of like David Lynch. Except somehow I don’t feel like I’m humoring Clowes when I read it, unlike watching Lynch’s more impenetrable imagery.
