"... 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"--Container.

This is a 89-minute documentary about Buck Brannaman produced in 2010.
The film shows a truly Americn story about an ordinary man who has made an extraordinary life despite his abusive childhood.
It is an amazing and thought-provoking documentary.

Fun insight for this city boy into human/horse interrelationship.

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.

This is a beautiful, heart wrenching documentary. Watch it with your consciousness and heart open, and you will receive layers of teachings.

While I loved most of the content -- the story is interesting, and certainly, Buck has earned his place as a hard working Horse Whisperer, given his abuse as a child -- I would have LOVED to know more about his method with the horses. But -- apparently -- that costs money :) !

A beautiful, heart-filled documentary about a man who trains horses. This might be one of the best docs I've ever seen. And the cinematography is out of this world. Brought more than a few tears to my eyes - he has quite a painful history. Amazing he is who he is today.

The cover will make you think COWBOY but the content will show you the PATRON SAINT for all who love horses.

Liked it a lot. We get to learn a lot about people and horses, and how horse's behaviour reflect the owner's behaviour. And we learn a lot about Buck and his life voyage. It is all very interesting.

As an urbanite, I have had very limited contact with horses, and I personally question whether riding any animal is abuse. Nonetheless, “Buck” is an informative and engaging documentary.
