Welcome to the Dollhouse marks a substantial (and obvious) improvement over filmmaker Todd Solondz's underwhelming debut, Fear Anxiety and Depression...

At its best it's like the funniest yet bleakest comic book Dan Clowes never drew.

One of the highlights of the 1995 Toronto Festival, Solondz's second film is a stark, often funny, always poignant comedy about suburban mores, centering on a misfit Jewish girl tormented by her family and classmates.

Matarazzo tem forte presença em cena, mas o filme não sai do lugar-comum.
| Original Score: 3/5
December 29, 2003
Blisteringly honest and side-splittingly funny. Solondz's most accomplished film.
| Original Score: 4/5

| Original Score: 4/5

Solondz mercilessly destroys the sugar-coated mythology surrounding adolescence. THIS is what junior high was really like.
| Original Score: 5/5

Powerful portrait of one young girl's valient effort to survive the cruel and tense world of adolescence.

At 87 minutes, Dollhouse is a near-perfect morsel. If nothing else, it informs older folk that school principals still threaten to record bad behavior in one's 'personal record' -- only now, computers facilitate the process.

Solondz knows his subject well, he is able to understand and convey what it is like to be brought up with self-hatred.
