Offers an exquisite tour of the twilight zone between high school and the so-called real world, as well as between bohemian subculture and the even stranger culture of America at large.

Wall Street Journal
Smart, surpassingly odd, extremely funny and mysteriously endearing at the same time.

Zwigoff pulls off something in Ghost World that seems a minor miracle -- he creates someone with a complex inner life.

Boston Globe
Whatever portion of the alienated teen angst championship Thora Birch left unclaimed after ''American Beauty,'' she nails down brilliantly in Ghost World.

New York Daily News
Funny, insightful, unpredictable and blessed with pitch-perfect performances, Ghost World is one of the year's best movies.

There's a loneliness at the heart of this world, and Ghost World, that's really touching -- and a bit scary, too.

This mordantly funny, emotionally piquant depiction of post-adolescent angst also has its roots in the graphic novel format.

Variety
By sharp turns poignant, disturbing and hysterically funny.

Baltimore Sun
In his first fiction feature, Zwigoff doesn't forget to bring the funny. But he doesn't bring enough poetry.

Bests most other teen comedies right off the bat. If you got a kick out of "Crumb," this film will crack you up.
