A richly textured and visually stunning film, follows Buck Brannaman from his abusive childhood to his phenomenally successful approach to horses. A real-life 'horse whisperer,' he eschews the violence of his upbringing and teaches people to communicate with their horses through leadership and sensitivity, not punishment. Buck possesses near magical abilities as he dramatically transforms horses, and people, with his understanding, compassion, and respect.

So touching. Here's what can happen to a man who suffered abuse as a child. Instead of losing his empathy, and turning into a serial molester, he is a man to admire and want to get to know. And, he's the man behind the Horse Whisperer. I've seen it several times.

Very touching and well done. A good film whether or not you like horses since it's really about the human spirit and its resilience. However, after watching the film I wanted to learn more about Buck. As in all things there are 2 sides to every story. The documentary makers chose to show the positive, more flattering side and in the process built up the 'Buck' myth. Many in the horse community do not feel the same way. But my takeaway is not a criticism of Buck the man but rather a more skeptical view of the film. There's a lesson here about how documentaries can be selective in the truths they tell.

Excellent horse whisper. This is 2nd time I watched Buck in the last 2 years. Be sure and watch bonus features.
Has a nice truck and trailer rig. Would like to know more about Buck's use of the flags on rods which I would think would spook a horse, but it's all part of the training. You hafta see the horse that bites people. Interesting comments by Robert Redford making a movie with Buck. On the road most of the year all over the USA with his clinics.

You don't realize how unjust it is, until someone shows you a different path.
