'Palindromes': A Strange Odyssey from Director Solondz

Palindromes is the dark, new film comedy by Todd Solondz. It's a sequel to the writer-director's Welcome to the Dollhouse. Bob Mondello says like that earlier film, this new one deals almost exclusively with discomfiting subjects.

Bob Mondello, who jokes that he was a jinx at the beginning of his critical career — hired to write for every small paper that ever folded in Washington, just as it was about to collapse — saw that jinx broken in 1984 when he came to NPR.
