Art School Confidential

(Terry Zwigoff, 2006)

Clowes on Film

Screening in conjunction with the survey of his work in our galleries (as well as an exhibition he’s curated) are these film adaptions of comics by Daniel Clowes. Clowes co-wrote the scripts for both films, which were directed by Terry Zwigoff. No stranger to cartoons and comics himself, Zwigoff is perhaps best known for his 1995 documentary Crumb, on legendary cartoonist R. Crumb, which made dozens of best-film-of-the-year lists.

Based on a four-page story by Daniel Clowes, Art School Confidential follows an aspiring painter and new student (Max Minghella) who comes face-to-face with the professional and romantic jealousies that simmer just below the surface at his school. Meanwhile, a serial killer is on the loose, putting the community and school on edge. Also with John Malkovich, Anjelica Huston, Jim Broadbent, and Sophia Myles. (102 mins., 35mm)

Come early for a curators’ talk at 6 PM and learn more about the Clowes-related exhibitions on view at the Wex.
