Mature, intelligent and haunting (but in a good way)
Movies that criticise the world can fall into many traps, leaving the viewer to feel jaded by the film’s experience. Ghost World’s witty appraisal of ‘America’ successfully avoids being childishly caustic or self-important and thus emerges as one of the best films of 2001. We sympathise with Enid (the luscious Thora Birch) without being expected to completely believe that her cynical world-view is necessarily the right one. Enid’s (and her best-friend Rebecca’s)negativity is turned on all around them, and their obsessive need to be cool but on their own terms sees them take post-modernism to its absurd conclusion.
Enid’s bizarre costume choices mean that she stands out from the rest of her baggy-panted generation, and in one scene is infuriated that no-one, even Rebecca, understands her ‘original 1977 punk look’ she’s testing out.
The fact that we should not fully empathise with Enid is shown by the contrasting character arc of Rebecca. There is a definite sense that she grows up over the course of the movie, but not in a “what have we learned about life” Disney way. Perhaps she has sold out to the conservative ideals that seemed so repulsive to them at the beginning of the movie, but just as Enid ultimately fulfils her desires, so does Becky live out her ‘seventh grade fantasy’. The important thing is not the choices people make, but whether they make choices with which they are happy.
The movie’s main targets are people who betray themselves in an effort to fit in, and their resulting stupidity by doing so. But the people who have remained true to their values (like Steve Buscemi’s Seymour, in a performance that should have been at least nominated for an Academy Award), are portrayed as leading equally vacuous lives. Seymour’s infrequent attempts to achieve ‘normality’ are galling for us to observe, and near soul-destroying for him to experience.
This is an excellent movie. Thora Birch gives her most confident performance to date, and Scarlett Johansson is superbly laconic as Enid’s icy side-kick. The supporting cast all shine. Strongly recommended!
I love this movie. It is so simple. Just an episode from the lives of two girls who have just finished high school. Nothing fancy, nothing spectacular, or unusual. Just a situation that we’ve all been through, but shown through a different set of eyes.
The performances by Thora Birch, Scarlett Johansson (hottie), and Steve Buscemi are very good and the story is heart warming and often very funny.
Movies like this are seldom and Hollywood tends to make it’s films unnecessarily spectacular these days. It sometimes works, but is often quite ridiculous. Think – Michael Bay.
This is film is highly recommended to anyone who cares about life. 10/10
