The New York Times by

Son of the White Mare isn’t just old hat; the simultaneously geometric and fluid animation renders each mythic trope totally new.


IndieWire by Eric Kohn

This movie unfolds like artwork etched into a cave wall and brought to restless life by an unclassifiable spell that only cinema can muster.


The Film Stage by Matt Cipolla

The movie is a myth. It’s also an emblem of the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, a fluid piece with a perspective so spatially and temporally unstuck that its shortcomings don’t hurt it too much.
