A career-best performance from Alison Brie and a complex, thoughtful approach to mental illness.
November 20, 2020
Amongst the metaphor and pathos, it's Brie's performance that stands out.

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.

There is a lot going on in Horse Girl (2020), and it very nearly manages to pull it off.
April 9, 2020
A luminous and colorful indie with surprising amounts of realism. [Full Review in Spanish]
March 18, 2020
By the end, viewers have whiplash and a distinct sensation that the script needed several more drafts, but they aren't bored.

Horse Girl unfolds like a fever dream, appropriately. A twisting narrative built upon strong performances. The end is far from satisfying, but that's part of its charm.
February 24, 2020
Brie's performance is powerful and the film's editing does a superb job of mixing Sarah's obscured perception with reality, succeeding in offering an unsettling look into the mind of someone who suffers from a severe mental illness.
February 24, 2020
An ambitious, odd project, and one that sticks stubbornly in the mind's eye.
February 24, 2020
The film looks like it's shipwrecked. Adrift. [Full review in Spanish]
February 21, 2020
The conclusion is meaningfully painful and actually felt like an invitation to revisit the film, a privilege afforded to streaming flicks that is too rarely exploited.
February 16, 2020
An incongruous, engaging ride, Horse Girl doesn't hit all the marks, and some audiences will become deterred, but Brie's tour de force performance is truly the base and it's one worth jumping off from.
February 15, 2020
Mental illness as the engine for a thriller is a cultural conceit whose days are numbered, but, as a last gasp, there's no denying this entry is compelling and evocative.
February 13, 2020
Young woman battles mental illness; sex/nudity, language.
February 13, 2020
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.
February 12, 2020
Brie is rawly convincing as a troubled woman for whom the sides of reality have become too slippery, transformed into the heroine of a private sci-fi melodrama.
February 12, 2020
Horse Girl takes a while for its story to get going, but once it gets into gear, it excels in its beautifully bizarre and thought-provoking themes.
February 12, 2020
The character writing truly is Horse Girl's greatest strength, what makes it notable instead of a dime-a-dozen straight-to-streaming movie.
February 11, 2020
Horse Girl is a strange movie ... It might not always make sense, but it still works; it's the kind of movie that'll leave you scratching your head ... in a (mostly) good way.
