Equus Review


Good
Why did Alan (Peter Firth) blind six horses one night? Because he's totally frickin' nuts, that's why. Nonetheless, it takes 137 minutes to drive that point home in Equus, wherein Richard Burton (playing Alan's psychiatrist) draws out Alan's bizarre mental confusion of religion, sex, and horses. In a series of intense shrink sessions, the truth is eventually made clear, well, as clear as possible, considering Burton's own insane rants, delivered directly to the camera. Good Will Hunting's got nothing on this looney bin! (Of note, since Equus, Firth has somehow made a career out of playing doctors and military officers.)
