Everything produced by the Duplass Brothers is hollow and superficial and cutesy. Their examinations of the bourgeoisie lack depth and flatter their audience...

This movie is definitely not about horses. If you want to watch a conspiracy-theory movie with sci-fi gimmicks that have been done much better in other films, then feel free to waste about 104 minutes of your time to watch Horse Girl.

The film looks like it's shipwrecked. Adrift. [Full review in Spanish]

The second half of "Horse Girl" loses rhythm and tension, finding the writing irritatingly light on detail when it comes time to submerge the lead character in complete insanity.

Director Jay Baena takes giant leaps and tries to get over a rocky start by offering unique ways to explore mental illness. However, the balance never finds equilibrium, that by the time the end credits roll, you might shake your head in disbelief.

Brie has put her all into a character that keeps us at arm's length and a movie that's not serious enough for its subject -- mental illness.

The ambition of Horse Girl ultimately gets the better of it, turning what could be a dark but insightful depiction on signs missed in a mental health crisis into an agreement on one's madness

An empathetic depiction of mental illness, but the film fails to clear the hurdle it sets itself.

"Horse Girl" delves into a troubled mind only to get lost among its oddities, forgetting the sensitivity that drew it there in the first place.

Horse Girl's big weakness is that it can't decide how much ambiguity to provide its central character, or how seriously it wants to present Sarah's breakdown.

Solid performances and a good atmosphere can't save Horse Girl's descent into frustrating abstraction.

HORSE GIRL is a flick that bites off more than it can chew.

I'm not sure what great lesson we are supposed to take from Sarah but the audience kept laughing at her antics and I had no idea why. I just kept cringing

There are indications that "Horse Girl" and its creators have something to say about the sorry state of mental health care in this country... but it's never explored beyond basics.

A dark movie that gets weird for no good reason, a victim of writers who can't figure out the ending to their story.
