  • Justin Gerber

    Goat deals with masculinity, fraternities, and PTSD in equal doses, covering all of them with brutal precision and most importantly, success.

  • Zach Shevich

    James Franco makes a brief, charged-up appearance as Mitch, an alum of the fraternity, who laments that his wife and baby keep him away from booze. Schnetzer delivers a quietly devastating performance in the lead role.

    Goat is a potent reminder that even traditional gender roles can be rife with angst, anxiety and devastating social pressures.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Lanre Bakare

    The film is a pointed, astute and unflinching look at unbridled machismo and its consequences.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • David Rooney

    This taut adaptation of Brad Land's 2004 memoir is less a dramatized depiction of headline-grabbing hazing tragedies than a penetrating consideration of the psychology of violence and its role in defining manhood.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    Along with an ending that some will find either enigmatic or unsatisfying, the movie could benefit from some minor re-editing. But there’s still much that works here, from the chillingly droning score to a uniformly strong cast.

  • Joe McGovern

    Schnetzer, whose stock is sure to soon rise, is a shape-shifter — you’d never look at this gay Irish 1980s activist in Pride and conclude that it was the same person — but in only a few roles so far, he’s shown an extraordinary ability to portray both vulnerability and the mask screwed on to hide it.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    There's a numbing aspect to Goat. But the best of it, I'd say, is honorably harsh; the subject should be difficult to watch, or the filmmakers aren't being honest about the way we operate as a culture, and what we allow and encourage our young men (and the young women who suffer the fallout) to put up with, still.

  • Stephanie Merry

    Goat doesn’t shy from showing us monstrous behavior, which might be more than some viewers can bear. This isn’t an easy film to watch. But it’s even harder to forget.

  • Peter Travers

    Goat means to shake you, and does it ever.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    For once, the frat boys are depicted not as lovable dolts or harmless pranksters, but as sadistic bullies. Likewise, their excessive initiation rites are played not for lowbrow comedy, but for something closer to horror. This is basically the anti-"Animal House."

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    Goat scrutinizes an aspect of American culture often relegated to punchlines and magnifies the darker reality beneath.

    Indiewire Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    It might have set out to convey the disturbingly sadistic nature of institutional brotherhood, but it’s the familial variety with which “Goat” explores something ultimately more compelling.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Amy Rowe

    Few films take a look at the American male college tradition through such a dark, dramatic lens as Goat.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Josh Kupecki

    The film is another near-miss talking point in an endless deluge of reminders that this system creates a breeding ground for toxic masculinity.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Noel Murray

    The differences between Goat and a Very Special Episode of some Disney Channel sitcom are, at times, limited to the amount of on-screen puking. That said, Neel, Roberts, and Green do have a good feel for the vagaries of bro culture’s macho codes.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    The film's hazing scenes evoke the boot camp sequences in "Full Metal Jacket" but without the merciless coldness, because the film's hero, Brad (newcomer Ben Schnetzer, in a career-making star turn) desperately wants to belong to the organization. Full Review

    John Landis’s “Animal House” (1978) this is not.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Glenn Kenny

    The performances are conscientious and earnest.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Jordan Raup

    Goat is a compelling watch, but in the end, its themes are a bit muddled, and certainly not unique.

    The Film Stage Full Review
  • Matt Brennan

    The film's understanding of the brittleness that begets the "traditions" of frat culture is altogether shallow.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    To pretend that the pledges (who voluntarily submit to such harassment) are somehow the victims in an institution of exclusion, objectification and underage substance abuse goes far beyond disingenuous, and the resulting film falls far short of actually surprising those who already know a thing or two about fraternities.

    Variety Full Review
  • Oliver Jones

    A singularly unpleasant and ugly topic film about a profoundly unpleasant and ugly topic, Goat possesses all the directness of a fraternity paddle whack across the keister, but with only a fraction of the subtlety. As to which experience is more enjoyable to live through, it’s pretty much a tie.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • G. Allen Johnson

    Perhaps it helps to think of Goat as a horror movie. There is a genre of horror film known as torture porn — films that revel in graphic depictions of torture, violence and sadism, mostly to defenseless victims. Think of Goat as hazing porn.
