Todd Solondz United States, 2001

Benjamin Reid's rating of the film Storytelling

This Solondz film is very self-aware of its uncomfortable subject matter, but it is not smug about it. Its status as interesting art results from its story being unlikable, which makes it a bit hard to critique, but a fair amount of it is funny satire. Though certainly not for most people, at least it is nowhere near as upsetting as "Happiness." This would never be made in 2018 but it feels (unfortunately) relevant.
