I've become a bit of a Chloe Zhao tragic, we watched The Rider last night and if you haven't seen it ... go now ....we found it on Netflix ... below is the opening paragraph of story about the film in Rolling Stone. Link below.
There’s an epic magic-hour shot in Chloé Zhao’s The Rider that’s so gorgeous, every great Hollywood Western director might want to hang up their spurs. Real-life saddle bronc rider Brady Jandreau, a daredevil 20-year-old with a busted head, hand and hip, mounts a horse that could kill him. At his last rodeo, a stallion stomped on his skull. Jandreau barely survived, but his doctor’s orders to never ride again are just a slower kind of death here on South Dakota’s Lakota-Sioux Pine Ridge Reservation. But there he goes, galloping past the sunset. You can imagine John Ford beaming somewhere.
