The ending (and I will not give it away) will still haunt me. I walked out of the theater almost not wanting to interact with anyone after seeing this film. It was like I've seen a ghost. Solondz never ceases to amaze me, its always a risk when it comes to his style. His films of pathos and empathy for the underdogs of america really resonate this film about obsession and life.
Will you be mine?... The movie is intense as shit and even more uncomfortable than Happiness (though it doesn't have a father admitting to his son that he would jerk off to him). Here we see Solondz actually create a sympathetic lead character but doesn't water down anything! Funny, Moving, Brutal. Really a remarkable movie.
Best feel bad movie I've seen this year! The acting was fantastic and the comedy was brutal but hysterical. The whole film felt like the perfect antidote to the whole Judd Apatow man-child craze and the actual realities of that phenomena. In all honestly it felt more like a tragedy than a comedy! The ending almost made me cry and I loved how he played with reality throughout the film. One of the best of the year!
