Variety - Jay Weissberg: Flabbergasting images and a delightfully dry sense of humor make 'Of Horses and Men' a debut worthy of celebration. Stage and shorts helmer Benedikt Erlingsson reveals an astonishingly inventive eye and a sensitivity to the confluence of spirit between man and animal that's impossible to capture in words, balancing desire and jealousy with the cycles of life and repping a boldly distinctive vision set in a quirky horse-riding community in the stunning Icelandic countryside. Iceland's Oscar submission will be proudly trotted out at fests and deserves visionary distribs willing to back an outsider. Peter Bradshaw (The Guardian): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gcBnkPHaC5w
