Dark Horse

Genre: Comedy; Starring: Selma Blair, Jordan Gelber; Director: Todd Solondz; Runtime (in minutes): 85; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: Vitagraph Films

Fourteen years after Happiness, why is director Todd Solondz still mucking around with the sort of idiot neurotic dweeb who makes George Costanza look like George Clooney? Abe (Jordan Gelber), a 35-year-old dolt, lives with his parents and stuffs his room with action figures and models of The Simpsons. He’s a character meant to make us squirm, but the most squirm-inducing aspect of Dark Horse is the way that Solondz is still stuck in his outdated loser tropes. (Also available on VOD) C
