Storyline

In the late 1800s, somewhere in the West, two cowboys, the laconic Tar and the prolix Slope, sit by a daytime campfire eating beans. Their cattle are somewhere nearby. Slope begins to wonder about things, including a line about "the child inside all of us," something a Chinese told them just before Tar shot him. Slope talks about skipping, something he hasn't done since he was a kid. He keeps talking, even through it's making Tar uncomfortable. Then Slope slips off his boots, stands up, and, indeed, starts to skip. What will Tar do? And what if they and their inner children aren't alone? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Brilliant! Hard to be a real man in a dog-eat-dog society!
7 September 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

In a world that screams at men to 'grow up', 'act your age', 'be responsible' comes this insightful little clip that challenges the way we perceive each other (as men) and breaks through the 'calloused' exteriors required in order for men to survive.... and of course, when this happens - there's always others around who are more than happy to shoot you down.

Great film - brilliantly acted. Billy Bob was just fine, as too his skipping little partner!

Many deep and profound levels to this little ripper - only the discerning and contemplative types would probably get it though. I was moved - humorous, playful, tragic...

A rare classic in a sea of tired-old plots and ridiculous CGI experiments. Well worth the watch.
