Director Terry Zwigoff honors him with an unsentimental but endlessly affectionate tribute. Full of infectious music and comedy, this is a humane evocation of the kind of pop-cultural marginalia that Zwigoff would continue to make in the coming years

Jerome, a kid from the suburbs who loves to draw, goes to New York City's Strathmore College for his freshman year as a drawing major. Competition and petty jealousy consume faculty and students, with an end-of-first-semester best-student award held out as a grand plum. Worse, a strangler is on the loose, killing people on or next to campus. The idealistic Jerome falls in love with Audrey, a student who models for life-drawing classes and who responds to his sweetness. But he has a rival: the clean-cut, manly Jonah, also a first-year drawing student, whose primitive work draws raves and Audrey's attention. As cynicism seems to corrode everything, Jerome is desperate to win

Babbo bastardo ( visu )
5 editions published between 2005 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 8 libraries worldwide
Trama: Willie, rude e alcolizzato, e Marcus, un nano di colore, svolgono una strana attività: ogni anno, in prossimità delle feste natalizie, si fanno assumere da un grande magazzino per intrattenere i bambini travestiti rispettivamente da Babbo Natale e da elfo. Lo scopo recondito, però, è quello di studiare il sistema d'allarme per poi, al sopraggiungere della festa, svaligiare la cassaforte del centro commerciale e sparire senza lasciare traccia. Di città in città, la singolare coppia di malviventi giunge a Phoenix, dove viene assunta in un imponente centro commerciale dal direttore Bob Chipeska. Questi, tuttavia, insospettito dal linguaggio volgare e dalla predisposizione di Willie ad appartarsi nel reparto taglie forti con alcune clienti, incarica il responsabile della sicurezza del centro, Gin, di svolgere qualche indagine sui nuovi assunti. Tra la moltitudine di bambini che ogni giorno si reca dallo stravagante Babbo Natale, sempre in ritardo e spesso visibilmente ubriaco, spicca Thurman, un biondo e paffuto fanciullo di otto anni orfano di madre, che vive con la sola nonna perché, sostiene, il padre è via per una lunga escursione in montagna (ma successivamente si scoprirà essere in prigione). Nonostante la volgarità di Willie, Thurman, vessato dai coetanei per il suo aspetto, è attratto dall'anomalo Babbo Natale e lo attende dopo che questi ha ultimato la giornata di lavoro Willie, dal canto suo, visto che nella stanza del motel in cui risiede c'è ad attenderlo quello che pare essere un poliziotto, decide di trasferirsi in casa del bambino, approfittando del fatto che la nonna siede, perennemente, davanti alla televisione e che dimostra di non fare troppo caso alla sua presenza Thurman, tuttavia, si affeziona sempre di più a Willie, il quale è costante preda dell'alcool e dei suoi appetiti sessuali (porta in casa del bambino anche la sua nuova e dolce amante Sue): progressivamente, malgrado il cinismo dell'uomo, in prossimità del grande colpo che Willie e Marcus stanno per portare a termine, il candore di Thurman riuscirà a fare breccia nel cuore del falso Babbo Natale e, in qualche modo, a redimerlo

Ill-mannered store Santa Willie Stokes is really a safecracker with a holiday tradition of making one big score every Christmas Eve with his clever elf--partner-in-crime Marcus.
