Dark Horse

There are two kinds of filmgoers in this world.  Those that like Todd Solondz and those that don't.  (And generally, if you know him by name, you probably like him.)  With a filmography including 'Welcome to the Dollhouse', 'Happiness', 'Storytelling', 'Palindromes', 'Life During Wartime', and now 'Dark Horse', Solondz (like Woody Allen and Wes Anderson) has created a recognizable style of filmmaking that some, like me, always look forward, but others might find too weird, quirky, awkward, and sometimes disturbing.  But for those of you who haven't seen his films, if you dig weird, quirky, awkward, and sometimes disturbing, you should check out 'Dark Horse', an awkward romance featuring Selma Blair, Jordan Gelbar, Christopher Walken, Justin Bartha, and Mia Farrow.
