Happiness

It seems so wrong for me to say this, but Happiness is hilarious. Granted the subject material is straight up Solondz alley. Pathetic, sad characters dealing with such uplifting concepts as murder, rape and pedophilia. Sad lives in an area of New Jersey I know well, too well perhaps. The film is surprising how upbeat its style is, the look and feel of the film never goes to the depths of its subject matter. The writing is also very sharp, creating uncomfortable laughs. Had I seen this in a theater, I would have been the one asshole laughing my ass off.
