The movie "the Rider" directed by Chloe Zhao.

The main character Bradly — rider horses. Speech at the horses in front of an audience — it is a profession, it the bread, the meaning of life. It is important to keep in the saddle. But it turns out, alas, not always.

The hero falls with a horse, gets a head injury. He lives. However, such injuries often do not go unnoticed. They footprint a person's life. Its world Outlook, psychological condition, the possibility or the impossibility for further professional activity.

The story takes place in the steppes of North America. Shows life, culture, way of life of the people of those areas.

Near the hero of his father, the younger fifteen year old sister. Mom is not. She had died.

Near the hero of his friends, guys.

The first problem with which faced hero — is like to make money on? Because the money is needed at least minimal in food more. And he working age. But return to the previous way of earning on still not possible. He needs to find another way.

And it's good that you need to contact the employment centre, where people may be able to quickly find a job, and the process is experiences months, even longer. It is important that people are able to understand the pain of this man. The people who will decide its fate.

The second problem. It is the psychological state of the person. It's ability to accept such a turn of life as he is, to accept his life how it has developed. Accept yourself the way you are. To find harmony. Whether this is the main character?

Because one side of his friends say to him that we all together, all like a part of the same chain, but on the other hand, everyone at the same time and lonely. And to find harmony in his inner world in the time of loneliness — is that need to try to do.

In the movie pays a lot of attention to the inner world of man. Silence, rest in steppe, desert, lonely, beautiful. Beautifully and majestically shown the moon by night. No big noise of big cities, there is a void of wilderness, which is important first the inner world of the character.

Why is it so important and significant the movie? With one hand the life of a particular person. With the other hand the concept of "to be able to stay in the saddle" it is important for each person. Rider says, "Every horse may be the last." For the rider is the horse. And for the driver who every day sits down at the wheel? Every driver, remembering it must be attentive on the road. And not only he. Here why is this film important for each.

The only what is not agree that they decided the fate of the horses of Apollo, also injured. In such matters between man and animal there is no difference.

More recently, the Rodeo star and a horse trainer, rider Brady Blackburn is faced with always standing somewhere in turn a vision — that is a serious injury. What it will be, if you have to quit your dream?

Cowboy drama Chloe Zhao, to grab the prize "critics Choice" for the best film of the year, pretty similar to what is commonly called the sports drama is that the addition to here it mixed with a bit of reflection, noticed in"Dallas buyers club". Of course, my pragmatism allows you to sympathize with the lessons, like the Rodeo. Have to each his poison, right? That us kill you makes you stronger. Not matter. You wanna kill yourself, go ahead. Under their own responsibility.

Brady chose her fate and she predictably came earlier than expected. But unlike his friend lane Scott, with drop the horse has paralyzed and tied the chair (there is a strong suspicion that movie documented close to reality play here the characters are actually themselves), Brady at the same advate hooves on the head has become fully disabled or dead with only periodic spasms in hand a hidden brain injury. And because catches glances of former partners jumps, which hurts the pride and ego. They say, not man, what you? Just think, the head injury.

But as a whole life without a favorite pastime is losing to cowboy all meaning. Brady finding himself in another home without Rodeo horses she emerges he some point begins to feel the burden of a man, it is associated with his closest partner — the horse, which because of the smaller injuries usually without hesitation target. So the athletes with an injury of the head or spine does not unable to resist the risk to go back on the ice, or snow ring. This purpose the meaning of life. Because in the end laid again. it is human intrigue. Responsibly to make a choice from many dubious ways.

The audience's existential and elegiac "Rider" Chloe Zhao can easily assume that before them the documentary, and not the feature film. Of course, the story of "the Rider" is a fiction, albeit not being outright a figment of the imagination. Mediation tape contains myself as the facts based on their artistic exaggeration (and not only Director). The crew mixed them properly "Rider" in the end, exposed the heart of the script and provided food for thought. Let this newwestern flaunts masculinity; still hopefully, cinematic grace "Rider" not similar what other.

The main character name Brady — a young cowboy is trampled by his horse at the competition. The subsequent operation was successful, the guy put in the head of a steel plate and health Rodeo he never seen. Hero tries to come to terms with a new reality and a new life. Interestingly, actor Brady of Sandro, who plays Brady, is not only its namesake, but and have gone through similar experiences. Real father Brady performed in the movie father screen cowboys, as well as his sister. On the course of the film character a few times visits the other rider, who received a similar injury, but he was less fortunate — he was paralyzed. Too if say that it also plays a real disability and other very real actor Brady?

Thus, in the entity "Rider" is a personal story, in which the participant of real events almost recreates them on the screen. Filmmakers used non-professional actors in his films, I think, almost with the dawn of cinema, but Zhao did something special. Probably in all the fault of the charisma of the lead actor Brady of Jandro. The young man, rising cowboy star and in real life, looks great in the frame. Non-professional actors in the movie are used for the sake of giving the band a natural, but they only, as a rule, the elements in the complex's feature entertainment. "Rider" is — all fully the brainchild of Brady Jandro; it is impossible to imagine that the film would have same impact this man in the center of the story.

"Rider" at this, also there is one of the best movies that tell about the relationship of humans and horses. Almost a documentary experience with Brady wild and even the scary creatures are fascinating for their spiritual content. Some tough love aromatizirovannaya showing why the horse was important to a cowboy, and also makes you wonder where went the traditions and the respect of the rider to this animal. The Brady worship of these beings is not only cunning highbrow directorial technique, but and allows you to be a significant plot factor in the history Brady, and not just Association with the profession of the young man.

All this presents the stunning camera work. The people behind the camera understood the magnetic force of the Prairie, stretching to the horizon. In  the"Rider" few close-UPS: the majority of staff here are focused on nature. It is important, since this style of shooting creates a special bond that is present, it seems that only at watching westerns. In this case it is only amplified, thanks to authentic we do, lying between neo-realism and documentary that, perhaps, drew attention to this small and almost imperceptible draft. According to everything "Rider" has to look twice: not focusing on hybrid approach the first viewing, i.e. watching only for the history and the second — knowing that on the screen are real people, desperate to confess.

The best part of  the"Rider" is that Zhao not the temptation to tell an abbreviated or altered the history of Brady. She could it to do, in terms of reflection of the hero about the new roads on his life easier or even Leslie that love festivals. The Director decided otherwise, focusing on the inner world of a modern young man, in whose soul is still alive the tradition — with all the complexities and ambiguities in the perception of similar stories. The mediation chinaprice a "Rider" passed in such a way that is not converted nor in a sermon or something smart, challenging or unusual. Tape requires concentration of the viewer and the openness to accept this concept, but it's worth it.
