Reasonable slice-of-life portrait of a rodeo rider whose world has passed him by while he did a stint in jail. The movie has a number of interesting moments, along with quite a few that seem pretty scripted. All in all, unique film that is worth a look if it's on late at night.

Could only watch an hour--too dull and just into the rodeo scene. Very typical of a period of film making I never particularly liked. Normally I like Cliff Rovertson. The only part that made you sit up and take notice was the few minutes of Geraldine Page on screen. She's always excellent.

Ambles along without a much focus and be warned the ending is a real downer. Decent acting but apparently Geraldine Page was given second billing because of her stature, she is in the film briefly at the beginning and then vanishes from the picture.

Overlong, but a modest and interesting character study. Robertson is very good, and touches on but avoids getting mired in the usual overplayed themes of gen. gap, celebrity, and counterculture. More Geraldine Page would have been nice, but there's a good support cast and many actual rodeo stars as themselves.
