Re: Wow, "Welcome to the Dollhouse"
Most of what happens to the female protagonist in the movie is dinky and childish and stupid more than flat out horrific; most teen movies would probably Hollywood it up a lot, I think the best thing about the movie is that the movie doesn't really make you feel her pain a hell of a lot. In spite of it being a quirky 90s movie it seemed a lot more accurate than most teen movies, even more than ones I like. It's not a great movie itself but I did appreciate those qualities about it.
I cited the Ebert review because he openly stated that he would never forgive people from back then.
