The Mustang is a wonderful Clint Eastwood film but better because it wasn't written by directed by or starring Clint Eastwood. It's a Clint Eastwood film that isn't a Clint Eastwood film, which is the best kind.

Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre directed this story of an angry inmate who can't be rehabilitated and hates confinement, and now must break a wild mustang as part of a federal program to control wild horse population. The parallels, though a little heavy handed, are poignant nonetheless, and the look and feel of the film is so gorgeous that it will seduce you with its sincerity.

The Mustang is a twin of last year's The Rider, though a fraternal twin because this one is noticeably more beautiful.

Psychologist: You've been in isolation. What do you think about that?
Roman: I'm not good with people.

Since I have worked with horses before, and know a few people in the system that have gone through similar situations as portrayed by Matthias Schoenaerts, this movie hit home. Some people are better with animals than they are with people, and sometimes animals can help people out even if it is not intentional.

A quietly powerful story. Tame the horse tame the man!

Solid movie with a good performance from Matthias Schoenaerts. A little slow at times.

Great movie about a man imprisoned over a decade for a violent crime who is isolated and shut down. He participated in a rehabilitation program for wild mustangs. Great movie withgreat performances showing how a turnaround can happen with the help of animals. Highly recommended.
