It seems stuck entirely at the level of "what would happen if we tried..."

Nothing about Palindromes is easy to resolve. This should come as great news for fans of Todd Solondz.

There's pointed fatalism and indictments of middle-class superiority, but Solondz, ever the outsider, never loses affection for his misfits or stoops to passing judgment on their motivations. Love or hate him, he's vital.

"Palindromes" is a sloppy and muddy film that uses the shock value of seeing adult men humping numerous underage girls as its recurring visual device inscrutably linked to an unclear abortion issue theme.

A bizarre but brilliant headscratcher!

Certainly a unique vision for a filmmaker, this is not a flick for everyone. Stick with it, however, and you just may thoroughly enjoy what is at the heart an incredibly sweet tale.

The director's latest trek into the lunatic void, of what can best be described as the cinematic version of clinical depression.

potentially decent film buried under the thick layers of misanthropy

OK, I'll admit it: I've next to no idea what to make of Palindromes, and you know what? I doubt the filmmaker would have a problem with me owning up to it.

Most demanding.

For all its pompous attempts at seriousness and emotional depth, Palindromes is actually a remarkably shallow affair.

Aviva...in all her permutations, may as well be a bug under the director's microscope.

[Director Todd] Solondz simply pukes all over the American landscape and all its inhabitants in a nihilistic cinematic chunder...

Underdeveloped and uneven yet oddly watchable, the gimmicky "Palindromes" once again cements the conceit that nobody makes films quite like Todd Solondz.

Todd Solondz's latest provocation is Palindromes, yet another uncomfortable fable of suburban dysfunction, puberty, and statutory rape.
June 17, 2005
Solondz's masterstroke is to have the girl, Aviva, played by eight different actors of varying ages, sizes and races -- a move that should decimate the film's narrative coherence but instead ups its allegorical value immeasurably.
