This guy Matthias Schoenaerts is off the charts. I first caught him in a beyond superior performance in Rust and Bone and now after seeing him, found this movie lastnight with this him starring as a young cattle farmer 'Jacky Vanmarsenille' in Bullhead. Inspiring performance.. and beyond! A++++++

Great movie with an intense story and great performances. The character of Jacky is full of emotion and surprises.

Here's a great review from Drew McWeeny over at There's a restaurant right by the Alamo Drafthouse's parking lot, a Tex Mex place called Maudie's that has a sign I've walked past several times during the festival so far. It says something about \"There's no bull in our beef,\" and lists all the things their meat does not have in it, including hormones. It's a selling point

Many terms applied to action movies - muscular, animalistic, testosterone-fueled - are literally true of Bullhead. Full Review

Time Out New York
Every time the narrative's underworld schnooks and low-level lowlifes edge their way out of the periphery, a sense of snorting impatience takes over. This is Jacky's story, and when he's grabbing Bullhead by the horns, you don't want him to let go. Full Review

New York Daily News
Schoenaerts capably handles a difficult role that's equal parts pathetic, repulsive and heartbreaking. But you'll need a strong will to spend your time with such a tragically hopeless character. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
An intense, shattering film, a confident and accomplished, punch-in-the-gut debut by Belgian writer-director Michael R. Roskam that starts out like a thriller and turns into a disturbing tragedy in an unlikely and unexpected key. Full Review
Marjorie Baumgarten
Austin Chronicle
A persistent narrative thread that pits Flemish-speaking Belgians against French-speaking Belgians will whiz past most American viewers, but hopefully not distract from its overall impact because this movie grabs the bull by the horns and takes viewers on a surprising ride. Full Review
