• "Unrelentingly claustrophobic… The violence that <i>A Horse Walks Into A Bar</i> explores is more private and intimate. Its central interest is not the vicious treatment of vulnerable others but the cruelty that wells up within families, circulates like a poison in tight-knit groups, and finally turns inward against the self… Strategic weaving together of manic humour and tears… <b>Searing and poignant</b>."
