Reeling from a terrifying assault, a 19 year-old boy enrolls into college with his brother and pledges the same fraternity. What happens there, in the name of "brotherhood," tests the boy and his loyalty to his brother in brutal ways.
Roger EbertFull Review Above Average This is a conflicted movie—far darker than the best-know recent looks at the subject... There's still a lot to chew on after seeing "Goat"—in particular the question of why organizations that are essentially incubators for the most retrograde ideas about manhood are still allowed to exist at institutions theoretically dedicated to enlightenment...
Rolling StoneFull Review Good ...it's Jonas, projecting Brett's dawning realization not just of what he's witnessed but of what he's been party to, that gives this jolting film its grieving heart. Goat means to shake you, and does it ever.
Rex ReedFull Review Very Poor 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.
Slant MagazineFull Review Average The film's understanding of the brittleness that begets the "traditions” of frat culture is altogether shallow.
