Horse Girl (2019)

Jeff Baena directs Alison Brie, Debby Ryan and Molly Shannon in this strange drama where a shy and sensitive woman begins to suspect she is losing time and any sense of reality.

A genuine strange one this. Especially as I’m adamant that I reviewed it weeks ago. But that post has disappeared. Fitting giving the themes. It starts as an awkward comedy but then the mystery overwhelms. It is a good mystery, pleasingly never fully squared up. Fair to say if disquiet and rambling aren’t your bag though… back away now. This is not a clean or slick piece of storytelling. Alison Brie puts in a brave performance that is affecting and ethereal. Well worth a mind-bending risk if you like things that used to be programmed after midnight on channels before they shut down for the night.
