AO Scott & NYTimes LOVES “Dark Horse”!

By Ted Hope

Wow. When you love cinema and know how privileged you are to spend your life and labor creating work you love, how can you not give your all to your films? Even still, when you’ve worked hard, compromised your fees, dealt with errors and mistakes, problem people and people problems, you don’t always know it was worth it. Nothing tells you that it was like a good review in your hometown paper, particularly when your home is New York City.

I am thrilled with the love that has been bestowed upon our film DARK HORSE. We open today, at The Angelika in NYC. One screen. Hopefully we will play for months. Hopefully this review will fill the seats. Wow. Wow. Wow.

It’s nice when something you’ve worked years on, sacrificed a chunk of your fee on, that you’ve chosen to distribute, goes off and gets one of BEST REVIEWS EVER from AO Scott & the NY F’n Times!

“Mr. Solondz brilliantly — triumphantly — turns this impression on its head, transforming what might have been an exercise in easy satirical cruelty into a tremendously moving argument for the necessity of compassion.”

So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending time to talk about this matter here on your site.

    A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment. I do believe that you ought to publish more about this subject, it might not be a taboo matter but generally people do not speak about these topics. To the next! Best wishes!!

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy I came across this in my search for something regarding this.
