    I’ve only ever seen Happiness from Solondz which I thought was great but maybe a little too fucked up in parts. Welcome To The Dollhouse is similarly a demented mix of intense plot points placed in a 90s sitcom atmosphere but I think it struck a better balance.

    It’s hard not to compare this to 4 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days and it comes out pretty well I’d say. It’s like 4 Months on ambien, or alternatively, 4 Months is like this on meth. This film was clearly going for a documentary like feel in order to drive home the reality that…
