  • 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

  • While skipping the more shocking turns of something like "Happiness," Dark Horse does feel like a return to the fearless darkness of those earlier films, a tale of a loser who's fully drawn but never allowed to be lovable. show more

  • Someone like Abe could only prevail through the powers of denial and optimistic wishing, and Solondz makes that happen, as the film gradually slips into fantasy. 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.
