New In The USA: DARK HORSE
Abe (Jordan Gelber) is the kind of obsessive collector type who is such a state of arrested development that it practically nullifies anything Judd Apatow had to say in The 40 Year Old Virgin. Both vile and sad (and as is the director's idiom, quite funny) we watch Abe embark on a romantic adventure with a depressed Selma Blair. Christopher Walken and Mia Farrow show up in supporting roles and both resemble living, breathing acts of taxidermy. Admittedly not for all tastes, but what film in Todd Solondz's filmography is?
