Record executives want a highly-regarded record producer to focus on a white pop act whom they feel has the sound America wants. To keep his creative integrity, Buckmaster carefully begins to fight the system that has made him the respected producer he has become.
The grey horse he steals, is actually an Arabian, not a mustang. See more »
Caroline Langrishe forgetting she's supposed to be a bound captive, pulls her hands from behind her back, then quickly returns them into position. In the next scene we see her captor untying the ropes that bind her wrists. See more »
Long before the myths began, it was primitive... unforgiving - but in that vast, limitless space, man had one ally... the horse.

The whole thing seems like a very beautiful film school exercise, the rehearsal for a real film, or the cuttings from another film, picked up off the floor and edited into a... well, not a cohesive film, but certainly something.
Story is hardly there, or nonsense, and at one point has a couple of threads that I guess come together, to no particular purpose. Other threads are dramatically brought up then entirely dropped just as they reach their zenith.
The whole film is really like that. The most beautiful, well-scored, emotionally-moving, and generally sensible part of the film is the last few seconds, and the scene that plays out under the credits. No, not being insulting to say "credits were the best because it's over." I mean, there's a scene there, and it was the one time the movie really worked.
Too bad it took the better part of 2 hours to get there.
Also: Sam Waterston as an Indian. Sigh.
