  • The combative, off-putting Dark Horse features many of writer-director Todd Solondz's usual preoccupations: misery, complexity, stunted emotions, misplaced dreams. show more

  • Abe's day-to-day trials may eventually seem like cheap daytime TV, but Gelber and Solondz know how to nail the uncomfortably funny optimism shadowing American desperation. show more

  • Never less than watchable and loaded with trademark negativity so extreme it's sometimes funny, the new film is nonetheless saddled with a protagonist so narrowly and unlikably presented that, in the end, he doesn't seem worth the time devoted to him. show more

    Seriously?! I was so excited to see this movie, especially after watching the trailer and reading the reviews. All I can is, the reviews have GOT to be Yarmulke effect. Of course any jewish earns a few brownies, but come on. The movie is definitely lacking. Just to be fair Jordan Gelber performed well, but that is not enough to make this movie worth this hype at all.
