"Laos’ first ever crime-thriller, “At the Horizon” is a well-written and well-performed account of a mute mechanic who violently crosses paths with a rich college kid. Pushing the boundaries of censorship with an honest depiction of social division in this communist state while carefully avoiding overt political commentary, debuting scripter-helmer Anysay Keola has produced a solid genre piece that marks him as a talent worth watching. Pic played commercially in a censored version locally in February 2012 and ought to extend its steady run of fest appearances for some time yet. International and regional ancillary prospects appear bright"
