Brie's performance is open and honest and disturbing and funny and lovely and resonant.

Ostensibly, this is a tragedy about mental illness... But "Horse Girl" is far more subversive and playful than just that, allowing for Sarah's peculiar reality to envelope our own.
February 10, 2020
Brie's performance is funny, sad, disturbing and, ultimately, resonates because you do believe the mental health nightmare that this poor woman is going through.
February 10, 2020
Actress and co-writer Alison Brie combines forces with director and co-writer Jeff Baena for a consistently intriguing, occasionally brilliant, black comedy.
February 10, 2020
It's a little bit of a thriller, a little bit of a drama, a little bit of a comedy, a little bit of a romance - and wholly its own thing.
February 10, 2020
Alison Brie's commitment to this beleaguered Horse Girl is a thing to behold.
February 10, 2020
...the movie as a whole is such a compelling dive down the rabbit hole.

I am certain of two things: this is one doozy of a watch and Alison Brie is at the height of her performing powers.

Horse Girl features a great lead performance by Brie, but its narrative and core themes are too scattershot to make much of an impact on viewers.

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.

I found the experience of watching Horse Girl to be more of a chore than a pleasure.

While Horse Girl loses its way in its third act, Alison's Brie transformative performance and the film's invigorating take on mental illness truly makes the movie worth watching.
February 8, 2020
Worth it for Brie's emotionally charged exploration of this character that takes the actress known more for her comedic chops to some pretty bleak places.
February 7, 2020
The way Brie shows you Sarah slowly slipping out of reality-then steeply sliding further down a snake pit of instability-gives you the sense that she's flexing a new set of muscles.
February 7, 2020
Beautifully filmed with a story that captures your heart while finding a way to make you question the reality of what you're seeing, it's a film that shines a bright light on its subject matter and augmented by skillfully thoughtful acting.
February 7, 2020
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.
February 7, 2020
Alison Brie is terrific in this challenging look at mental illness.
February 7, 2020
[Jeff] Baena and [Alison] Brie make for fascinating collaborators and his filmography is a testament to the boundaries he pushes by making angsty movies about knowing if you are still growing, or stuck in this state of mind forever.
February 7, 2020
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
February 6, 2020
A shaky dramatic enterprise. Nevertheless, this story of Sarah (a distinguished performance by Alison Brie) -- a seemingly normal young woman at the mercy of frightful delusions -- quickly proves seductive.
