Like all of Solondz’s films, Wartime teeters, sometimes excruciatingly, between emotional extremes. This tightrope can make audiences squirm with discomfort, but its creator is never deliberately cruel. The scourge of middle-class self-satisfaction, Solondz makes suburban horror movies that are exquisitely precise.

Solondz doesn’t coddle our prejudices but probes them. His pop-smart title is borrowed from a song on Talking Heads’ greatest album, 1979’s Fear of Music. Not doing a haynes, however, Solondz invents a whole new melody and lyrics (“Time to reflect time/ Time to rethink time”).

Framed against the image of pervasive artificiality, Solondz creates an eccentric metaphor for longing as a manifestation of impossible construction, where only the prospect of redemption, not happiness, lies within our grasp.
