The Rider
Cowboy Up, And Down, But Not Out
Official Site | Trailers & Mo

R | 105 min

Native American… cowboys???  They exist!  And one in particular’s real life story has been turned into an incredible pure American feature film starring the rodeo driver (his family and friends) himself (and themselves)!  Chloé Zhao‘s The Rider is to be seen, and to be savored!   In competition, Brady Jandreau had a horse stomp on his head and almost fatally crush his skull!!!  Brady (who looks like a leaner, rougher Josh Hartnett) was lucky to be alive, but he had to give up the only life he’s known and loved – rodeo horse riding, cause one more false move could spell the end of his days.  But this cowboy would not go gently into that badnight.  Sure, his best friend Lane Scott suffered a worse fate (in the movie AND in real life) – immobilized and incapable of speech – but Brady just wants to get back on a horse – or get as close as he can, like training them.  The ‘will he or won’t’ he tension, trioed with family financial hardships, and his touching relationship with his real-life and screen-life sister with Asperger’s syndrome – Lily, is a triple threat of cinematic awesomeness.  Saddle up folks, this one is for home AND the range

Forget human beings Wes, cause your cutesy minutiae works best when you’re playing with actual toys.  Personally, I don’t think you’ve hit a human home run since Tenenbaums, but as Fantastic Mr Fox and now Isle of Dogs shows, you can be SO freaking creative and provide SO much fantastical fun when utilizing stop-motion animation.  I am not usually a fan of stop-motion animation, or even dogs, or even Greta Gerwig, but you nailed it (minus the Greta Gerwig part)

Orange Crushing It

(Warner Bros., 1971) Original designer’s proof sweater, made in the UK by Mike Ross, known as ‘The Ritva Man’, with a 35” chest, size small. Made exclusively for Stanley Kubrick to commemorate his film for only the most important cast and crew members, this extremely limited sweater features an Alex DeLarge (Malcolm McDowell) appliqué, droog eyeball patches on right and left sleeves, a RITVA MAN tag and the number “1” embroidered in the collar. There is also a handwritten tag reading, “Clockwork Orange by Stanley Kubrick, HAWK FILMS, designers proof , 1/3, Edition of 30, 1972 MR (Mike Ross)”

Any surviving example of this rare artifact would be extraordinary, let alone the #1 artist’s proof in unused, unhandled condition with virtually no signs of aging. Besides this Kubrick commission, Ross designed specially made sweaters for The Rolling Stones and other major celebrities, and he and his wife Ritva Ross are credited with such fashion innovations as the knitted mini-dress. Their work, sold from a boutique in Chelsea, is heavily influenced by popular culture and contemporary art, and they collaborated with David Hockney, Allen Jones, and others of the time. According to a key Kubrick production team member, only a handful of these sweaters were actually produced and presented, not the entire edition of 30 as planned. One of the most iconic and exceptional artifacts from a unique synchronicity of talents
