    It is a fairly unusual viewing experience but if you like twists on reality, this is for you.

    This is one of those rare times that I agree with the critics over the audience. That said, you do need to be in the right frame of mind to watch such a mind bender. Is it a comedy or a drama? Yes. Is it sci-fi or reality? Also yes! I love stories with plausible multiple endings and this one can fit perfectly into whichever ending you choose. The acting, directing and production values are outstanding as is the story (stories?). Personally, I see a way that both can be true. Give this one a watch, keep an open mind and enjoy!

    This movie is a runaway train and I kinda liked it. Sarah is magoo, works at a fabric store and has no life 'cause she's so awkward. But then, when the delusions start to set it, the ride starts to go off the tracks into a bizarre land of strange ideations that are so strange you can't stop watching.

    Although Horse Girl is clearly structurally problematic and not as sophisticated in execution as its premise demanded, the movie mostly works as it is effective in all of its suspenseful and also tragic moments. The movie wouldn't have worked nearly as much had it not been for Alison Brie's truly remarkable and heartbreaking performance.

    Alison Brie give a vulnerable and raw performance as Sarah, a young woman suffering from mental illness, in Jeff Baena's Horse Girl. Obsessed with conspiracy theories concerning alien abduction, she walks a fine line between reality and delusion, trying desperately to maintain balance in her life as she attempts to convince those around her of her dealings with aliens. Baena does an excellent job of integrating Sarah's dreams and hallucinations into the story, which makes for a harrowing trip down her personal rabbit hole. The film is highly effective in shedding light on mental illness, but the impact is ultimately diminished by the strangely ambiguous ending.
