Movie Reviews

  • writer and director Todd Solondz has created a distinctive set of films about losers who face steep challenges to keep their souls alive
    by Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat [Spirituality and Practice ]
  • we lose the fascination he holds for Solondz and the film becomes rather aimless
    by David Noh [Film Journal International ]
  • the movie strays too far into fantasy-Abe suffers mightily-but Solondz still has an ear and an eye for a specific hell in the real world
    3 of 5 by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York ]
  • performance non-art
    2.5 of 4 by Ed Gonzalez [Slant Magazine ]
  • on the surface, a comedy, preferring quick, barbed exchanges to thundering speeches
    3.5 of 5 by A.O. Scott [New York Times ]
  • it's a nightmarish but poetic moment in which the film's themes come strikingly together
    3.5 of 5 by Alison Willmore [Movieline ]
  • despite its flaws, Dark Horse largely succeeds as yet another installment in Todd Solondz's career-long examination of the lust for love and security among the deeply damaged
    by Ian Buckwalter [NPR ]
  • Dark Horse is neither incisively black-comic nor particularly attuned to human behavior-proof that some directors, at least, do end up the way they started out
    by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice ]
  • Abe's day-to-day trials may eventually seem like cheap daytime TV, but Gelber and Solondz know how to nail the uncomfortably funny optimism shadowing American desperation
    3 of 5 by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News ]
  • a visual joke there -and the fantasy scenes both get into Gelber's head and reveal a movie in conversation with itself
    Review rate : B by Scott Tobias [AV Club ]
  • a return to form after Life During Wartime and Palindromes, which seemed like experiments in style more than anything else
    by Marshall Fine [Huffington Post ]
  • a hair too brief at 84 minutes to gain the breadth or impact it deserves
    2.5 of 4 by Dustin Putman [DustinPutman.com ]
