The angst-ridden cartoons of
Daniel Clowes have been the basis of two feature films: Ghost World in 2001 and
Art School Confidential in 2006. Now comes Wilson, which Clowes adapted from
his book of comics about a middle-aged misanthrope, played onscreen by Woody
Harrelson. The film also stars Laura Dern and Judy Greer. Critic David
“The question about Wilson the movie is, ‘Will you enjoy spending time with such an abrasive protagonist?’ I did. I was predisposed by my love of Daniel Clowes’s graphic novel, a series of one-page, old-fashioned comic strips like Peanuts, the difference being the main character’s foul temperament and language. Clowes wrote the screenplay and was smart enough to fill out other characters and provide a fairly strong narrative: After Wilson’s father dies without ever giving his son what Wilson craves—unconditional love—Wilson discovers that the child he thought his ex-wife aborted was put up for adoption. She lives, she’s 16, and Wilson wants to find her.”
