Description Brady Blackburn, a rodeo bronc rider with some renown, learned everything he knows about horses and riding from his parents, Wayne and the now deceased Mari Blackburn. Brady is recovering from a fall off a bronking horse in a rodeo, the most serious of the injuries being a skull fracture which required a metal plate being inserted into his head. Including checking himself out of the hospital earlier than advised, Brady is determined to get back up onto the literal and proverbial horse as quickly as possible as being a cowboy is all he knows. But deep in his heart he knows that returning to the rodeo in particular is something that is probably not in the cards without increased risks, which is eventually confirmed by his doctor who tells him that he cannot sustain another serious head injury without some major consequence. He does not even want his friends and family to treat him with kid gloves in being able to do any of those physical activities which are part and parcel for him of being a man and a cowboy. Brady has to come to some realization as to this fact and come to terms with it - which is difficult even as his best friend, former rodeo rider Lane Scott will forever be institutionalized needing around the clock medical care from a similar accident - or end up killing himself physically in the attempt to bronc again, or killing himself emotionally in not being able to do what he loves.

This movie is not exactly the "official" version of "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly." It is a film by "A" Freeland, who wrote and directed the screenplay. She said that it was loosely based on "The Smokies," but that it was not intended to be a historical film. "We did not want to make a history movie, we just wanted to tell a story." Her intention was to tell the story of the four boys from the rancher's ranch. The Wild Bill Hickok, played by William Holden, and the two young boys, Doc and A, played by Michael Rooker and Harry Hamlin. They were selected by the Great Depression of the 1930's and 1940's, to find the missing Smoky Mountains. The story is told in the traditional style of the era. The characters are archetypal, yet with a sense of sadness and loss. The two young boys, A and Doc, are "monsters," because they lack the skill of other boys of their age. They are not violent, but also very quiet and much less resourceful than the rest of the boys. The film is very uplifting. It's not just about the boys, but the people that they meet along the way. The landscapes and natural beauty of the Smokies are wonderfully captured. The sound of the actors' voices is so real and emotional, you will fall in love with the characters. You can feel the sadness, and the joy of the characters, and the sadness of the past, and the hope of the future. The songs in the movie, in their sound, are the most beautiful thing I have ever heard in my life. They are made by the guys in the band, and the band is the "warms up" music. I really recommend this movie, it is well worth your time.

What makes this film, as great as it is, is not the writing, the acting or the cinematography, it's the simple fact that the film is, above all, about people. The opening credits set the tone for the rest of the film, and while it's obvious that John Ford is at the forefront of many people's minds, his work on the film is not only superior, but is one of the best of the genre. Of course, it's all the more impressive when you consider that he wasn't writing the script, and yet the whole thing feels incredibly authentic. There are times when you just want to take a break from the film and really go back to the theme song and other film clips to understand exactly what this film is about. With that said, I've seen so many reviews stating that the characters and the acting are not up to par, but I feel that that's an understatement. The characters are strong and well thought of, the acting is not just passable, but is great. I can easily say that the actors of the film were on par with some of the greats of cinema, and I don't think that's an exaggeration. When you get down to it, the film is a love letter to John Ford, and the fact that he wrote it, and that he directed it, and that he directed the entire film in the way that he did, makes this film an extremely beautiful film to look at. I was incredibly moved by the films' ending, and believe me when I say that it's one of the most emotional and powerful endings that I have ever seen. It's not a love letter to John Ford, but it's a masterpiece, and I recommend that everyone go see it.

Just saw this at the 2nd IFC festival in New York City, and was pretty impressed. I like the characters, the cinematography, the location, and the art direction. I'm not sure why it was a small theatrical release in Canada, but I would be surprised if it wasn't picked up by the theatre. The film is a very interesting film, and I think it will be one of the better films of 2012. The story is set in the 1890's. A man, a cowboy, lives in a small town in the Appalachians. He has his life all to himself, and rarely makes the acquaintance of anyone else. But one day, a lonely young woman, a widow, comes to town and says she needs help. She is a woman of exceptional beauty and a woman of great courage. As a widow, she can find no one to help her. She asks the cowboy for a horse, and he obliges. She then asks for a gun. The cowboy is also the sheriff, and he also refuses, and sends her to the town morgue. In the morgue, she meets a man named Billy, who is a former military man who has spent the last 30 years riding in the west. He says he will find her a horse, and is willing to help her find one. Together, they set off on a journey to find a horse. It is a very interesting story, and I would recommend it to anyone. The photography is beautiful, and the film is directed very well. It is also very interesting to see a film about a woman who is a widow, and that is the one point of the story that is almost non-existent in the rest of the film. This is the best I have seen by the actors, and I think that speaks for the quality of the film. It is very good and worth seeing, and I would be surprised if it isn't picked up by the cinema.

In the 1800s, in a small, rural town in the American Northwest, a band of outlaws take over a white man's farm, murdering everyone in it. There are other bad guys along the way, who kill the town's doctor, the sheriff, and the farm's owner. They kill and plunder the town, robbing and burning it to the ground. The heroes of the town's defense are the people of the town, the elderly, the sick, and the poor. As the survivors begin to die off, it's up to the sheriff, the doctor, and the mayor to put an end to the town's worst criminals. And to prevent the men of the town from taking it back. This movie had everything I expected. It had the acting, the directing, the production values, and the plot. It had all of these elements, and more. The acting in this movie was excellent. The characters were well developed, and it wasn't hard to feel for each of them.

The directing and cinematography were also very good. I really liked the way they shot the movie. It was very well done. The camera was very steady and the angles were very good.
