The Rider (2018)
Critic Consensus: The Rider's hard-hitting drama is only made more effective through writer-director Chloé Zhao's use of untrained actors to tell the movie's fact-based tale.

Critic Reviews for The Rider
It's a kind of parable, delivered in a manner that has nothing to do with preaching.
"The Rider" reinvigorates tropes from the western genre of men, horses, honor codes and vast expanses of nature with a refreshing lack of sentimentality, without sacrificing their inherent lyricism and poetry.
But as wrenching as The Rider can be at times, it's also suspenseful and beautiful - a modern-day Western with a hero who's a real discovery.
Zhao seems to have filmed with her head down, focussed on her screenplay, rather than up, focussed on the richness of what was taking place around her.
Filmmaker Chloé Zhao turns the story of real-life bronc rider Brady Jandreau into a gritty, graceful character study. Once The Rider hooks you - and believe me, it will - there's no way you will ever forget it.
