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)
