Todd Solondz United States, 2011

SiIencio's rating of the film Dark Horse

Madness as a refuge from reality, as a dark place with no exits, no windows. Under the surface, impregnating it all, Solondz's trademark critique of depressive Western culture and values. Solondz unravels this tragicomedy where, if anything, we will learn to sympathize with the underdog, appreciate the sweetness in madness and distrust the norm in reality.
