David says: Yes, got to stop talking, got to stop, got to stop, it's a problem isn't it? Is it a problem? It's all right David; just tell Sylvia why you're here. Ahhhh!

January 25, 1996 | KENNETH TURAN, TIMES FILM CRITIC
Todd Solondz has turned the myth of Sundance inside out and upside down. His "Welcome to the Dollhouse," a biting and funny look at the miseries of childhood that manages to be scathing, sensitive and original, is one of the most admired films in the dramatic competition, and, according to the festival cliche, a wondrous studio contract should be the reward. Except that writer-director Solondz, a wry and engaging 36-year-old New Yorker, has already had his studio experience. Ten years ago.

The fog is thicker, thicker than you can imagine. The sound of the sea is the only one heard. Out of nowhere, a pair of one-man fishing boats come face to face. Wary, disbelieving, the owners stare at each other--it's not a friendly stare. What happens between them isn't shown, but the next morning one is found dead and soon after the other is arrested for his murder.

While many of this year's feature documentary Oscar contenders focus on an inattentive (or worse) government, some are notable for their intimate portrayals of an individual. Kimberley Roberts, whose home-video footage of Hurricane Katrina forms the heart of Tia Lessin and Carl Deal's "Trouble the Water," lands squarely in both and she thinks that means something. "I'm expecting to win," she says. "I feel like I've come too far in my life not to win. I don't believe that's my fate."
