    Both deal with the topic of "alienation", and I loved Ghost World and just bought My First Mister, so I thought I'd ask you guys which one is better:

    I like them both. Almost everyone will tell you that Ghost World is better. Although personally, I prefer My First Mister. But hey, that's just me.

    Ultimately, I ended up liking MY FIRST MISTER, but I like GHOST WORLD better. MY FIRST MISTER is more subtle and perhaps a bit more conventional, especially toward the end. It's more somber, for sure. GHOST WORLD appeals to less people, but the ones who like it are going to identify more strongly with it.
    Oddly enough, I threw up a little stream-of-consciousness rumination on GHOST WORLD at my website just yesterday. If you're at all curious why I love the flick, just click on Lil' Enid here:

    Both good flicks! I think Ghost World is better overall.

    Well, I have only seen My First Mister, but I enjoyed it a great deal.

    (did you see that, Steeve?)
