Take heart, art house movie fans: Big bad Tom Cruise and his Hollywood thriller "Mission: Impossible III" is not the only film in theaters on Friday. Small-time director Terry Zwigoff, whose low-budget films have won fans with quirky tales about people living on the edge of mainstream America, sees his comedy "Art School Confidential" open this week too. For people interested in art -- and not just movies, but painting, drawing and sculpting -- Zwigoff's dark and humorous "Art School" offers a wry take on artistic ambition. Bob Tourtellotte reports.
