  1. mayainmotion's rating of the film A Time for Drunken Horses

    Difficult to watch, a child's hearteache magnified by the inevitable loss of innocence from growing up too soon. Their eyes though, they glaze over you like kiln in a fire

  5. Nicholas Kohut's rating of the film A Time for Drunken Horses

    An unsettling tale of perseverance through unprecedented social pressures, A Time For Drunken Horses tells the story of Iranian youths who cross the treacherous Iraq border on a regular basis to scrape up enough money for their crippled brother to get surgery. I've never seen something so unique and absurd as men liquoring up horses to make such a grueling journey more bearable -- you can't make this up!

  6. Anna's rating of the film A Time for Drunken Horses

    This film tore me apart. Sometimes I felt like I could not continue watching because it was too powerful. If there is such thing as love in this world, then it is captured here perfectly, in all its rigid details.

  7. MicheleMpls's rating of the film A Time for Drunken Horses

    Wonderful story! The child actors are thoroughly engaging, I was drawn in by the stark lives shaped by border smuggling and ongoing armed conflict. Recommended!

  9. Collin's rating of the film A Time for Drunken Horses

    Brutal filmmaking; frequent touches of neo realism and Herzogian intimacy, with mostly diegetic sound and an interloper camera, all brings this intense, if brief, story into an internalized experience.

  15. Stephen Suelzle's rating of the film A Time for Drunken Horses

    I am really glad that I saw this movie. Everyone, especially the young people, felt very real. I checked the listing a couple of times to make sure it wasn't a documentary. Because it was simply done, and full of emotions you could really tell how the children cared for each other, especially Madi. I especially liked Ayoub's dedication and the younger sister's mothering. They really acted like real parents.

    Love that title. Have yet to see this. Saw the trailer back when this premiered here. Still haven't bumped into it, recently, which is a shame.

  17. filippo's rating of the film A Time for Drunken Horses

    documentarismo militante e la grande dignità neorealista iraniana, sono i bambini curdi i più belli del cinema.

  19. pedro eira's rating of the film A Time for Drunken Horses

    it is a very sad story, emotionally. And very well portrayed. But the main reason why I gave 4 stars is because I still do not know how the "players" can "represent" as well with the presence of the camera. Gives a full sense that there is no camera, that the camera is our eyes. That WE who are there.
