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.
February 10, 2020
I am certain of two things: this is one doozy of a watch and Alison Brie is at the height of her performing powers.
February 8, 2020
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.

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.

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.
February 6, 2020
Sarah is intriguing, sympathetic and likable, thanks to Brie's excellent performance. In her capable hands, Sarah is a frantic, vibrant eruption of pained, complex life.
February 6, 2020
Horse Girl features a superb performance from writer-star Alison Brie while the film also has something to say about mental illness.
February 6, 2020
A victim of genetics, Sarah follows in her grandmother's footsteps. Horse Girl's message is slightly muddled, but it allows Sarah to be a flawed hero in her own story.
February 5, 2020
I'm here to remind you to never judge a book or a streaming platform's next big title by its cover; Horse Girl is absolutely terrific.
February 4, 2020
A fine-tuned performance sells an unusual look at mental illness.
January 31, 2020
The sincerity that Brie brings to her full-fledged embodiment of mental illness is major, and in turn helps Horse Girl overcome its tricky storytelling.
January 30, 2020
Ambitious, but muddled, but also featuring a stellar performance from Alison Brie.
January 29, 2020
What starts off seeming like a quirky rom-com quickly morphs into something far more disturbing, and strange.
January 28, 2020
A rare and piercingly compassionate exploration of the sorts of madness that come from intense loneliness, and the intense loneliness that comes from being regarded as mad.
