Heroes: Todd Solondz

Filed under: Genius, Hurrah — corona @ 19:00

Todd Solondz is incredible. He has the best sense of humor I have ever seen on film. Well, next to Norm MacDonald in Dirty Work and Steve Martin in everything Steve Martin. Oh yeah, and anything starring Martin Lawrence. But back to Todd Solondz. He has an incredible way of making the darkest, most disturbing subject matter humorous. You feel terrible for cracking a smile, but that’s the point.  He shows you things you’d never want to see, but you’re glad you did. He gives you lines to quote for years, and when you hear others quote them, you know you have a friend for life!

Here’s a few of my favorite scenes from his films:

Palindromes
