Terry Zwigoff in person.
Zwigoff’s reunion with screenwriter Daniel Clowes has fresh-faced Max Minghella as an incoming undergraduate with dreams of Picasso-like conquest, until his idealism is confronted with smooth-operator pseudo professor John Malkovich, Jim Broadbent’s splenetic rummy failed artist, and a campus strangler on the loose. A deft mixture of psychological thriller (particularly Fritz Lang’s Scarlet Street) and pretense-popping satire, taking on the gallery industrial complex.
