Horns, 2013 - ★★★½

Horns is a mess which is a real shame because there's a really good film trying to get out. There's a childhood flashback early on which drags on far too long and serves little purpose. Then more and more recent flashbacks occur and you have to wonder why. The strength of the film lies in the confessional performances and cutting away to tell things in a conventional flashback is just a waste. Fortunately every time the film starts to sag another great, often laugh out loud funny, moment comes along. When things start getting weird they may not make much sense but I found myself just going along with them in all the glorious madness.
