"if Dark Horse was produced on stage rather than as an independent film, it would probably receive enormous acclaim, like Mike Nichols’ current rehash of Death of a Salesman or shows like Other Desert Cities and The Lyons. But Solondz’s film does what those plays don’t; he dramatizes the spectacle of Abe’s lack of self-consciousness, the moral perspective that contemporary culture drowns out."
So says Armond White in City Arts in a great review of Todd Solondz's DARK HORSE. Our screening tonight at the Film Society Of Lincoln Center is sold out, but there's always are a few seats to be sold twice to the lucky few who show up empty-handed. The film opens in NYC on Friday at the Angelica. As wise as White is, there's one thing in his review that may not be clear, DARK HORSE is still very much a comedy (as wise as it is too)>
