    Thornton and his excellent company summon up for us the long rides, dangerous companions, rites of passage, the mad love and, most of all, the special relationship between the man/boys that rode over the border and the horses that carried them there.

    You can see how this movie could have been jacked up into a one-level action picture, but what makes it special is how Thornton modulates the material. show more

    Lacks an essential sense of purpose.
