CANFIELD REVIEWS ART SCHOOL CONFIDENTIAL
Almost every movie has a money shot. It’s the scene, the moment that must work exactly as planned in order for the film to work. Awareness of which scene, which moment, is the money shot for any particular film is one thing that separates the artists from the fraud, the man behind the curtain. In Terry Zwigoff’s new film, Art School Confidential, it’s a man behind the curtain who is at the center of the film. But which man? That’s the question. And I’m not sure Terry Zwigoff knows the answer and I’m not sure he knows where the money shot was either.
