Living In: Welcome To the Dollhouse

Design*Sponge

Todd Solondz classic film Welcome To The Dollhouse may wear an R Rating and come packaged as satire, but its subject matter ?the awkward world of junior high school?is depicted with more truth and authenticity than many of its PG-13 teenybopper peers. Centered around a gangly, socially awkward girl (played by a brilliantly cast Heather Matarazzo), the film looks at pre-teen suburban angst through a dark, wickedly hilarious lens. The costumes and sets are unabashedly garish (Matarazzos getups are particularly fabulous), the humor is decidedly non-PC, and the adolescent discomfort so palpable you could cut it with a handsaw. Predating similarly kitch-tastic teen flicks like Donnie Darko, Napoleon Dynamite, and Ghost World by nearly a decade, the 1995 film seems remarkably ahead of its time. ?Max 1.
