The Reviews for The Dark Horse (2014) 1080p


A quiet masterpiece of storytellingReviewed bymbellamyVote: 9/10

Behind the beautiful cinematography, engaging and detailed performances, and deftly-paced editing is a master work of a screenplay. A wholly empathetic protagonist, with his wellbeing so delicately balanced, bombarded by obstacles. The stakes continue to rise, the subplots interweave seamlessly, with the whole story building to a perfectly weighted, moving, climax.

Once filmmakers could be just "good" or "interesting" and pull a crowd to the cinema to see their kitchen-sink dramas. The new Golden Age of television has put paid to that. We get great storytelling and interesting ideas pushing boundaries all the time, delivered on-call to our living rooms. if filmmakers are not making blockbusters, or special effect laden sensual experiences, then the stories must be wonderful and totally captivating to get a crowd in the car and front up with the ticket price. There's no place to hide...

This film is a great reminder of why there is still a place at the cinema for a low budget, domestic drama, they just need to be this good!

A King Film for a King AudienceReviewed byKieran TimmsVote: 9/10

"For all the stories in New Zealand that are made into films, I would say it is one of those I call unique. It allows us to see a side of New Zealand that many would rarely see. Cliff Curtis' performance as chess master Genesis surprises me, in terms of physical shape, mental state and spiritual essence. It goes to show that even a man with a disability can make such an impact on helping social impaired children and adolescents. And James Rolleston who played his nephew shows he can surprise even himself by learned he is more worth than he thought. I won't give it a rating of 10/10 or a 100%. I will rate this like one of the film's quotes: A King for a King."

Maori chessReviewed bylee_eisenbergVote: 10/10

"The Dark Horse" is one of many movies focusing on those on society's margins. In this case it's New Zealand's indigenous population. Cliff Curtis (a Maori actor who has played a variety of ethnicities) stars as chess player Genesis Potini, who helped a group of underprivileged children learn the game. One of the most interesting things about it is that we get to hear the Maori dialect; it's so strong that the movie has subtitles for those scenes. I'm not sure if any Maori got spoken in the movie, but this look at the hard lives that the Maori people have suffered ever since the colonization of New Zealand is a movie that I recommend. More importantly, how often do we get to see the Maoris depicted in cinema? Worth seeing.
