Happiness 1998

From Amazon: At times brilliant and insightful, at times repellent and false, Happiness is director Todd Solondz's multistory tale of sex, perversion, and loneliness. Plumbing depths of Crumb-like angst and rejection, Solondz won the Cannes International Critics Prize in 1998 and the film was a staple of nearly every critic's Top Ten list. Admirable, shocking, and hilarious for its sarcastic yet strangely empathetic look at consenting adults' confusion between lust and love, the film stares unflinchingly until the audience blinks. But it doesn't stop there. A word of strong caution to parents: One of the main characters, a suburban...

Happiness Movie Review by Tim (6/30/2008)

Happiness is a very strange film with some exceptional acting. The plot is simple but the actors and dialogue carry the film to being almost a masterpiece.

Happiness Movie Review by T (4/27/2007)

This movie had me doubled up in hysterical laughter through most of it, because I could not believe the things they did with the storyline or the concepts they incorporated in the movie. One of the characters is a pedophile, who has frank discussions and gives sexual advice to his pre-teen son. See? DISTURBING. At the end...
