REVIEWS

“The new Todd Solondz movie Dark Horse is great! If you don't go you can't complain about there being no inspired movies.”

Judd Apatow (on Twitter)

“Solondz brilliantly -- triumphantly -- transforms what might have been an exercise in easy satirical cruelty into a tremendously moving argument for the necessity of compassion.”

A.O. Scott, THE NEW YORK TIMES →

“We feel contempt. We feel pity. We shudder and identify. It is a vortex drawing us down into dark defeat and yet admitting glimmers of hope.”

Roger Ebert, CHICAGO SUN TIMES →

“Abe is blustery and self-pitying, but, with Solondz's new tender mercies fully engaged, Gelber makes you feel close to a guy for whom nothing was ever meant to go right.”

David Denby, THE NEW YORKER →

“DARK HORSE is a bold and clever movie...”

Richard Brody, THE NEW YORKER →

“The funny, sad Dark Horse adds a creepy loser in love to the director’s catalog of misanthropes.”

J. Hoberman, Tablet →

“The discomfort you'll experience is nothing compared to the exhilaration of seeing the world through Solondz's angry, sad, mordant but never-ever cynical specs.”

David Edelstein, NEW YORK MAGAZINE, Vulture.com

“...without turning soft Solondz allows Abe a measure of grace amid his rage. Blair is particularly memorable as a fogged-in, delayed-reaction deadpan wonder.”

Michael Phillips, CHICAGO TRIBUNE →

“...even though Todd Solondz' latest journey into suburban dysfunction may seem dark (and is), it's also about joy, and how easily it's wasted.”

John Anderson, NEWSDAY →
