  • It's a soulful showcase for Jarvis, who inspires terror and sympathy in equal measure... and the film is an impressive calling card for Rowland.

  • An engrossing tale that should do reasonably well in home-format placements, and give a definite leg up to the director and his principal collaborators.

  • The dramatic stakes feel rather low, and play out, particularly via the blood-soaked road-to-redemption climax, in the droningly soporific ways of many an indie.

  • With a similar vibe of RTÉ's Love/Hate, Irish viewers, I think, will enjoy this thriller.

    Nov 8, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Calm With Horses is uncompromisingly ugly and quietly heartbreaking, a meticulous picture of a family at war with the world and a man at war with himself.

    Oct 15, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The elements of Calm With Horses that are successful are nauseatingly bloody, emotionally engaging, and unrelentingly tense.
