The dark side of "It's a Wonderful Life"

In today’s New York Times, Wendell Jamieson writes about the classic Christmas movie, James Stewart and Frank Capra’s “It’s a Wonderful Life”, and emphasizes how it’s not mainly a sugary-sweet feelgood movie, but

a terrifying, asphyxiating story about growing up and relinquishing your dreams, of seeing your father driven to the grave before his time, of living among bitter, small-minded people. It is a story of being trapped, of compromising, of watching others move ahead and away, of becoming so filled with rage that you verbally abuse your children, their teacher and your oppressively perfect wife.

And still, the happy ending is just overwhelming.
