Let me grab your attention with one thing that everyone always loves to hear: Christopher Walken is starring in a new movie.
Dark Horse follows a thirtysomething man, played by Jordan Gelber, who lives with his parents (Walken and Farrow). Gelber’s character is stuck in a world of his own, unwillingly working for his father while pursuing his real passion: collecting toys. After a bit, he realizes he needs to figure himself out, so he seeks out help from a woman (Blair) to rid himself of the “dark horse” status in the family and actually accomplish something in his life.
This is good news for Walken, an actor known to take nearly every role he’s offered. Solondz, who’s responsible for cult classics like Happiness and Storytelling, is very talented at directing thought-provoking satire of family life, and specifically, American suburbia. He could not have found anyone better for a father role than Walken, and hopefully, with the rest of the talented cast, they produce a quality film — without needing more cowbell.
