Thomas's rating of the film Goat

What raises this depiction of vulgar, white privileged males thrusting their pumped agressions, above simply being a titillating, callous and voyeuristic endurance fest, is the understated 'inner' performances of the two brothers. Their relationship, which is equally blurred as their misguided visions of the fraternity, speaks volumes. Deeply unpleasant and disturbing, all the more chilling given its factual basis.
