    Certainly more light-hearted than one of my faves Happiness, Dark Horse is an excellent film. The lead actor is terrific, Selma Blair is great (as usual), but Donna Murphy absolutely steals the show.

    Reality and fantasy become increasingly blurred. And if you want to enjoy Dark Horse, you're just going to have to go with it.

    There's a streak of compassion in Dark Horse, a sincere empathy for a thoroughly detestable man, that is as surprising as anything in Solondz's earlier, more transgressive work.

    Seizing the role, and the screen, Gelber actually makes us care what happens to his surly, thoroughly unlikable character.
