I don't think I will ever understand the disappointing backlash against this film. What I witnessed was not your typical "western" film full of passionate love and implausible events. Instead, what I saw was beautifully captured images, powerful acting by Damon and Thomas, a story that twisted further down a darkened rabbit hole than I was expecting, and this challenging character study that gave us a brief insight to a world that will never be seen by our eyes again. This was not the romantic film that it was marketed as, this was not the adventure that it was marketed as, but instead it was the story of one character and the tribulations that effect him on his journey into the real world. It is the story of a very compassionate man that sees the honest darkness of those around him and must face the consequences of his actions. It showcases amazing acting that may be a bit disturbing for the unfamiliar eye, but to me was nothing short of brilliant. Billy Bob successfully adapted the story from the page, but it was not the film that he wanted. Miramax butchered this film in the marketing aspect, which ultimately hurt it overall. I will never understand why this did not receive the praise it should have, but will never be ashamed to bring it out for friends and family to enjoy. This film was like finding a dollar in the couch, an unexpected surprise that keeps a smile on your face the rest of the day.

I have read several reviews that just completely dismantle Damon's acting in this film. While his accent does fade in and out randomly, it is the way that he carries himself and reacts to the situations that unfold before him that really showcase the true acting ability of this star.

"It's the most fun I've ever had working on a film," Matt Damon gushed in one of numerous interviews for director Billy Bob Thornton's western epic, an adaptation of the novel by Cormac McCarthy that originally hit bookstore shelves back in 1992. Sad to say, Mr. Damon, it wasn't so fun to WATCH Thornton's finished product. "All The Pretty Horses" is like trying to interpret someone's bad dream, all scattered images and unintelligible action thrown together in a two-hour video. It is obvious in the first 30 minutes of "ATPH" that integral parts of the film were cut to fill a specific time frame. Enormous amounts of footage that would've made the film more understandable and perhaps even more enjoyable ended up on the cutting room floor due to squabbles between Thornton and studio execs. From what would've been a potentially long film (almost four hours, to be exact) it was severely sliced down to a mere 116 minutes by the hacksaw editors at Miramax and the film suffers greatly because of it.
The story is as follows: John Grady Cole (Damon) is a young man in late 1940's Texas who dreams of living the life of a prosperous rancher. He is determined to see and experience the old frontier before it disappears for good and makes a plan to travel to Mexico on horse with his good friend Lacy Rawlins (Thomas). On route, they meet tough-talking teen Jimmy Blevins, a young fugitive traversing the desert landscape on a stolen horse. He leaves the entourage only days later, dodging authorities for a second-theft of the same nature. Sans Blevins, John and Lacy cross the border and find work taming wild steeds for a man named Rocha, the most prestigious rancher in the area. Trouble brews when good ol' John falls for Rocha's beautiful daughter Alejandra (Cruz).

I've read several reviews for this movie that were less than flattering. But, in all fairness, this is a very good movie. Maybe it's not as complete as the book. But, what movie is? The actors are all convincing in the roles they play. The story is very good. And, if you are from west Texas, the scenery in this movie will be an added bonus. Watch it for yourself.

I read All The Pretty Horses when it first came out, which was a long time before the film was produced, so my memory was painted in broad strokes, and films, being what they are, are also painted in broad strokes as adaptations. I was intensely satisfied with what I saw, and added the DVD to my permanant collection. As Ive read others opinions, I almost feel as though I wasnt suppose to like it, but I did. I bear no prejudice towards Matt Damon, or his acting ability, or his personality, and I thought his acting was splendid, as was Henry Thomas and really, the entire cast. It was understated, subtle, yet effective. As for fully developing the relationship with Alejandra...hell, I fall in love with Penelope Cruz every time I lay my eyes on her, whats so hard to believe that it was love at first sight? When I read the book, and I shared it with many many people, the first 100 pages was really hard to get through. Once past it, it became a love affair between my eyes and the words on the pages. Most people who commented to me had the same reaction. I thought it was a great film, and I was disappointed that the industry, and the public didnt like it as much as I did. I, too, would love to see a Directors Cut. Id buy it as well.
