About the Movie
Pedro Costa's latest film, a follow-up to his renowned COLOSSAL YOUTH, follows Costa regular Ventura on an odyssey that is part horror film, part fever dream, and utterly unique.The time is now, a numbing and timeless present of hospital stays, bureaucratic questioning, and wandering through remembered spaces… and suddenly it is also then, the mid ’70s and the time of Portugal's Carnation Revolution, when Ventura got into a knife fight with his friend Joaquim. HORSE MONEY is a self-reckoning, a moving memorialization of lives in danger of being forgotten, as well as a piercingly beautiful work of modern cinema.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Audiences unfamiliar with Mr. Costa are likely to find the experience incomprehensible, but "Horse Money" offers a challenge worth meeting for viewers prepared to give it patience.
Fresh: If Horse Money is unmistakably a continuation of Costa's general line of inquiry, it also feels like a further refinement of his technique, from its comparatively taut running time to the shadowy expressiveness of the HD imagery.
Fresh: E even within the context of such unevenness, Costa's commitment to chronicling and implicitly dignifying the sufferings of the oppressed and the exploited provides Horse Money with a solid core.
Fresh: The particulars of what's happening are never clear, but what matters always is: Costa again steeps us in a crumbling world, in anger and loss, in the alienation of an impoverished and marginalized life.
