[A] fascinating documentary ...

Kate Taylor, Globe and Mail, 2016-01-15

 

As dramatically satisfying as the most crowd-pleasing scripted sports saga.

Joe Leydon, Variety, 2015-11-06

 

Despite its oversights, the film - shot and scored beautifully - is an enthusiastic introduction to this delirious event and its peposo of passion, style and intrigue.

Daniel M. Gold, New York Times, 2015-11-06

 

While Spender spends enough time with both new and retired jockey legends to collect a gold mine of macho, bullheaded rapport, you wish she delved deeper into the more sinister, behind-the-scenes wheelings and dealings.

Sam Weisberg, Village Voice, 2015-11-03

 

If the film is understandably intoxicated by the multi-coloured spectacle on offer, it's under no illusions as to the insidious corruption and insane brutality unleashed on the path to the prize.

Trevor Johnston, Time Out, 2015-09-29

 

Cosima Spender's documentary... plays like a classic sports drama thanks to its memorable central characters.

Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, 2015-09-29

 

The interview subjects aren't particularly eloquent, though; they tend to stop the movie dead in its tracks.

Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader, 2016-05-19
