Happiness Can Be Hard to Find.
3 October 2002 | by nbottSee all my reviews

This film is a somewhat disjointed affair for those of us who like our movies to be rational and to have either a happy or sad ending. This film is very direct and not very nice to the audience in some ways. But it is believable. As in real life, people don't have either happy or sad endings, they just have endings. At first, I found the film's characters to be simply one screwed up person after another floundering about and going nowhere. Finally, upon reflection, I found the film to be a study of what is truthful about a culture based on drugs and rock and roll. There are a lot of endings in this lifestyle that are what they are, neither sad or happy, just there. The film does not always explain why these people are where they are. I believe we are to assume they are where they are due to the lifestyle with its inherent flaws.

The film is quite creative in its editing from scene to scene. The acting is all first rate. You really, after a few minutes, really do care about these people even though they all appear to be messed up in one way or the other. The film left me somewhat resigned to the truth that people can not be changed, that we all have to face the results of the decisions we make.
