      Anthony Lane New Yorker If you are college-bound, go and see Goat first, but for God's sake don't take your parents. Sep 23, 2016 Full Review Scott Tobias Uproxx Goat is a suitably horrific expos of campus hazing, but it's wise about the difficulties of ending it, even when victims and perpetrators both want it to stop. Sep 23, 2016 Full Review Sara Michelle Fetters MovieFreak.com A shocking descent into debauchery that's as gripping as it is disgusting, [with] Neel delivering a searing portrait of abuse I'm not sure I could have torn my eyes away from had I wanted to try. Rated: 3/4 Sep 23, 2016 Full Review David Bax Battleship Pretension A lesser movie about hazing would cluck its tongue and put on a mask of sympathy for these boys, painting them as victims. Goat has the temerity to let us see them as they see themselves. As survivors. Jan 5, 2021 Full Review Steven Prokopy Third Coast Review Some may see it as a recruitment video for bad behavior in general, while others (including the filmmakers) may see it as an angry cautionary tale. Either way, it's a heartbreaking experience. Apr 28, 2020 Full Review Marshall Shaffer Movie Mezzanine Without indicting the fraternity system, co-writer/director Andrew Neel scrutinizes the viability of young men who look for a solution to the problems of masculine assertion and social cohesion within such groups.

      Olivia Y Pointless and utterly unpleasant. I don't doubt this stuff happens, but why make a film about it? I saw the point of ‘SCUM' and that's brilliant so I have no problem with violence if for a reason, it caused a review of borstals at that time, and resolved deep seated issues within. But this has no redeeming feature and should not get air time….. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/22/23 Full Review Manny P Another teen movie with some, self entitled, pretty boys. Reminiscent of the "Brat Pack" movies of the 80's, which always had the same stars and the same teen angst BS. This isn't a patch on any of them and they were bad. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 07/14/21 Full Review james g A half star is a stretch! This film opens with an intense beating of the main character who then goes off to college for some sorta silly hazing-lite such as being blindfolded and forced to eat...a banana? Seriously? I guess the the point is the REAL world is worse than eating fruit. Pointless and boring. Let's not even talk about the performances... Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Goat es el lado crudo de la trama de comedia cliche que hollywood nos vende ,visto de la manera real y cruda de la vida universitaria, es la profundidad que un film debe lograr cuando de impacto se habla. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member If young men taking 1hr30mins to finally realise that being a bit of a dick actually makes you a bit of a...you know...dick is your thing, then this is for you. It's a muddled mess, not ever confident of what tone to take and never 100% sure of what it's actual point is. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review david f So this is what goes on in fraternities!?! At what point does a movie about hazing become an instance of hazing for the audience itself? This film seeks to answer that question, I believe. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
