Bleak Canvas

"Art School Confidential" is a dead-on satire about the politics and maneuvering when it comes to success in art school. Director Terry Zwigoff's movie packs in cynicism, bleakness, and desperation, all wrapped up in dry, subtle humor. I laughed a lot, but I may be the only one who's a fan. Besides me, there was only one other person in the theater (and he chuckled only twice), not a good sign for opening weekend. If you liked the art class scenes in "Ghost World," you'll dig this movie.
