POP ART: Episode 62, Ghost World/The World of Henry Orient


STALKERS: Join me and my guests, podcasters and film enthusiasts Jordan Garcia and Armando Arvizu (of the Criterion Cult Film Podcast) as we discuss Ghost World and The World of Henry Orient, two films about high school BFFs who turn to stalking to past the time.

“Splitzing!” It’s friendship, friendship, just the perfect blendship/When other friendships have been forgot,/Ours will still be hot…Hminimm, maybe, maybe not. Sounds like it’s time for Episode 62 of Pop Art, the podcast where my guest chooses a movie from popular culture, and I’ll select a film from the more art/classic/indie side of cinema with a connection to it. This time, I am happy to welcome as my guests, podcasters and film enthusiasts Jordan Garcia and Armando Arvizu, who has chosen as their film Terry Zwigoff’s comic book adaptation Ghost World while I have chosen the somewhat unknown George Roy Hill film The World of Henry Orient, both films about BFFs in high school who turn to stalking to pass the time.

And in this episode, we answer such questions as: What is the connection to Will & Grace? What’s significant about Ghost World’s Academy Award nomination? What is the poster connection between the two films? What does the ending of Ghost World mean? What is splitzing? What is the connection to The Munsters? And Winnie the Pooh?
