    Joe MorgensternWall Street Journal

    A provocative but eventually dislikable two-part film that dares us to dislike it.

    Although Solondz's view is omniscient, as a filmmaker here he condescends to his characters' innocence, ignorance and bigotry, making him guilty of the same narrative crimes. show more
