    Solondz likes to put the screws to moral hypocrisy. As always, he goes too far. As always, you don't want to look away. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Palindromes isn't a wise movie, or a particularly true movie, but it's an honest one and a singular experience. show more

    Palindromes finds him (Solondz) stuck with his single theme inside a sealed dollhouse of his own construction. He has gifts to give a larger audience, if ever he breaks out. show more
