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.
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.
I watched this movie for the first time last night and I really enjoyed it.\nIt was funny, yet serious at the same time. It showed how tough it is to be a kid. Being someone who was a victim of bullying, this movie touched me and it made me root for Dawn to have a happy ending.\n\nWell worth a watch!! Not recommended for younger audiences, due to some foul language (constant swearing) and some inappropriate content.
I paid $5 for this at my Lehighton PA Walmart....nothing special about the 8 movies, except for the great price.\n\nOnly the comic book movie THE PUNISHER got an actual USA release? These movies have good production values, but still seem like they were hacked out to fill up time on pay tv channels. The prints are in good shape (though the cop movie EXTREME JUSTICE has a slight blur), but no subtitles. The usual shoot outs, explosions, and a few seconds of nudity and cursing. ON THE BORDERLINE is still another pro-illegal alien drama, if that's important to know.\n\nFor such a low price, enjoy these 8 movies while hitting the fast forward button a few times.
