See This or Die: 'They Shoot Horses, Don't They?'

23 March 2015 1:35 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Like the best horror and opera, "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?" is always stylish and always grim. In the pantheon of essential movies you only need to see once because their impact is so specific and traumatizing, "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?" is my ultimate recommendation.

In a wildly unpredictable, rangy lead performance, Moss shows us dark sides of her we've never seen before. Perry tears shamelessly from the pages of the hysterical women canon, keying into Polanski's "Repulsion" and "The Tenant," Altman's "Images" starring Susannah York, a sort of proto-"3 Women" about a splintering female psyche, with shades of Bergman and, yes, Woody Allen's own strained Bergman homage "Interiors." The creeping zooms of Sean Price Williams' 16mm camera close in on the faces of Moss and studio turned indie starlet Katherine Waterston, framed in "Persona"-like juxtaposition to instill in us the sickening feeling that these two women are two »
