I just watched Ghost World for the first time in years. What became increasingly striking and more noticeable than upon first viewing is the number of peripheral or mere background figures that drift aimlessly through the frame. It’s a lot more poignant of a film with age, kind of like Seymour’s 78’s. Also I find myself increasingly a lot like Seymour himself, especially given his age and the age gap aspect.

"Words are bridges.
And they are traps, jails, wells."
