Movie Reviews

  • unapologetically straight-forward but agreeably understated, this rewarding drama affords a long-deserving lead role to veteran character actor Clifton Collins Jr.; Collins has proven himself such a reliably compelling performer throughout the years
    3.5 of 5 by Shaun Munro [Flickering Myth ]
  • this is a film that reflects on truths more than it tells them; Collins Jr.'s acting indelibly anchors [the] film; "Jockey" is a solid piece of work that reflects on who we are and what we leave behind, as well as the prices we pay to get there
    3.5 of 5 by Norman Gidney [Film Threat ]
  • Clint Bentley's minor-key melodrama about an aging horseman that's as quietly earthy as it is emotionally shattering; Jockey's golden-hour cinematography and chiaroscuro lighting give its tale an elegiac grandeur
    by Stephen Garrett [Book and Film Globe ]
  • Clint Bentley's extremely personal drama delivers thanks to the fantastic performance from lead Clifton Collins Jr; Bentley's skillful direction and Collins Jr.'s committed performance make this a worthwhile race around the track
    4 of 5 by Grant Hermanns [ComingSoon ]
  • an evocative study of American life on the fringes that unfolds alongside the grand mysticism of stallions. Clifton Collins Jr. delivers a haunting, profoundly poignant performance
    by Tomris Laffly [Harper's Bazaar ]
  • a moving Clifton Collins, Jr. carries a sweet, sad song about horse racing; The performance is a deeply lived one; the film mostly succeeds, even if it tends to veer closer toward the heartwarming in place of harder, grittier truths
    Review rate : B by Ryan Lattanzio [IndieWire ]
  • a burnished, low-key showcase for two exceptional character actors; "Jockey" could have a good run, connecting with audiences who appreciate underdog stories and understated filmmaking
    by Sheri Linden [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • "Jockey" is a modest, intimate film, to be sure, but an impressively assured one. It finds a lovely, low-key groove early on and maintains it, and draws performances from its key players that are terrific and true
    by Todd McCarthy [Deadline ]
