War Horse: An Illustrated Review

The Browser calls this “Arguably the best review ever. Certainly of “War Horse”, as filmed by Steven Spielberg. Possibly of any film. Or indeed anything else. Charming, concise, evocative.” Lisa Hanawalt in The Hairpin:

• The woman sitting in front of me keeps falling asleep and I want to yell “HEY SNORE HORSE” so bad it hurts.

• Spielberg made a big deal about casting an unknown actor as the main dude, but he's really just a hunk, a baby Casper Van Dien. He's good at running through fields and aiming wet looks at the horse.

• If you explain how important something is to a horse, it will understand you and do that thing!
