I found this to be the most out-right funny of Solondz's films. It's still comically dark and thought provoking, but probably more accessible to those not familiar with his work.

Screenplay was exceptional such as quotes from Marty Livingston - "Life's...not...fair!” “Stop trying to impose YOUR misery on everybody else. "Oh, life is bad. Life is horrible." Life is tough on you, well, boo-hoo.” Mikey – “People who are bad should be killed.” Storytelling is a brilliantly directed film about troubled youth who...

Storytelling

I saw Solondz's "Happiness" maybe 4 years ago, and it became one of my favorite movies. It's so wrong it's right. So outlandish it's true. So dark it's funny. The character development in his films are fantastic (take that, Inception), and every time you laugh, you feel bad about yourself. Maybe you feel better about yourself because these characters are so fucked up, thus making you not that fucked up. Maybe we're laughing out of superiority. Maybe you don't think this shit is funny--just sick. Maybe you watch with horror while people like me are laughing. I mean, what else can you do when a little boy forces his underpaid, overworked Mexican nanny to clean up a juice spill moments after she receives news of her grandson's death? Or in the case of "Happiness", how do you deal with the co...
