The Rider

Recommended Posts

Chloe Zhao's film about a Lakota cowboy recovering from a TBI is one of my favorite features so far this year, probably second only to The Phantom Thread in my estimation.  Of probable interest to folks here in particular, it has some faith-based content that I found touching and authentic.  My full review:  http://www.patheos.com/blogs/secularcinephile/2018/06/the-rider-immerses-us-in-native-american-cowboy-life/

Thanks for starting this thread, Andrew. This is currently my favorite film of 2018. I went into it with zero knowledge of the story's premise apart from "horses," and was deeply moved by the film's characters and the strong directorial vision. Here's my review.

I haven't seen many 2018 films yet, but The Rider is among my favorites. I'm guessing I'm the only arthouse film critic who lives on a horse farm and has spent a lot of time around rodeo riders, so it was fun to talk horses and horse culture with Chloe Zhao. I'm proud of this interview.

Thank you for sharing this, Darren!
