Lessons of Darkness

Exhibits an almost pitch-perfect balance between condescension and compassion.

Happiness is tough stuff -- quietly confrontational, genuinely haunting, and, most disturbing of all, unexpectedly moving.

By far Solondz's best film, an original exploration of American suburban angst, with three Chekhovian sisters at the center and a gallery of "deviant" characters that are presented with humor in non-judgmental way.

It'll soon have you quoting German existential philosophers in coming to terms with it . . .

Montreal Film Journal

Even in the darkest, sickest moments, there's always some kind of humor [but] what makes this comedy superior to most is that it remains painfully sincere.

Some truly hilarious moments, but I spent most of the film with my mouth hanging open in shock.

We are talking humor here in a shade of black that a raven would envy.

I, for one, would be thrilled to see Solondz's heart open in his future work. But it would be a mistake to flinch from the greatness of Happiness in the meantime.
