David D'Arcy reports on the latest film from writer and director Todd Solondz. Solondz made a name for himself in 1995 when his second feature film, Welcome to the Dollhouse, premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. Like Dollhouse and its follow-up, Happiness, Storytelling has drawn criticism - not only for Solondz's trademark dark humor - but for a graphic sex scene...and how the filmmaker chose NOT to show it to American audiences... to get an "R" rating.
