All the Pretty Horses [Original Soundtrack]

Orchestrations ride ambiently in the background, highlighting tension and drama. The music here ranges from simple classical guitar licks for the dialogue and romantic scenes to a full 75-piece orchestra for the scenes of sweeping vistas. Both men survive the attacks--with John Grady killing his assailant--but they are badly wounded, and end up in the hospital's infirmary. Later on they meet a young aristocrat's daughter, Alejandra Villarreal, with whom Cole falls in love. Blevins is executed, but John Grady and Rawlins are merely imprisoned in the town of Saltillo. The two films have nothing in common except for how much they want to fix in the memory the way it was to be at that place, at that time: They use dialogue as if it were music, to establish a mood.

The novel made you feel like part of the adventure. Soon after they enter Mexico, the companions ride into a lightning storm. Although Rawlins returns to Texas, John Grady is intent on reuniting with Alejandra. When their romantic idealism of the West collides with the harsh realities of the modern world, the results of their actions and the choices they make are life changing. He gains legal possession of the horse in a court hearing where he recounts the entire story of his journey across the border, and the judge later tries to absolve John Grady of his guilt both for killing the prisoner who attacked him and for being unable to prevent Blevins being murdered.

It's as if the events are bigger than the people--as if John Grady Cole will never again be such a reckless damn fool kid as he was during this year and will always sort of regret that. John breaks some wild mustangs for Don Hector and discusses the fine points of horse breeding, on which the two men find themselves in agreement. It was a , and it won both the U. This is the kind of movie that's best to see on a big screen, where the size of the sky and the colors of the land can do their work. It informed everything we did. There is nothing left in Texas for John Grady, who loves the ranch and idealizes the cowboy's way of life.

Movie vs Book

It remains at the same volume from scene to scene. His mother has no ties to it anymore, and would rather have the money. Though our heroes fall into desperately perilous straits in their journey to manhood, that feeling is never lost. Sure, the movie was no Sling Blade, even if directed by the one and only. The judge tells him he is being too hard on himself and it could not have been helped; he must go on and live his life.

They learn Blevins had escaped his pursuers but subsequently returned to the village where he had recovered his horse, this time to retrieve the pistol. Soon afterward, John Grady is wounded while defending himself from a and kills the man. The movie stars and as John Grady Cole and Lacey Rawlins, and they're followed on the trail by a kid named Jimmy Blevins , who is riding more horse than the other two can convince themselves he paid for himself. The kid knows it's his fault and does the right thing, keeping to the trail in front of the pursuers, while John and Lacey lose themselves in the sagebrush. Well acted by Matt Damon and Henry Thomas, but felt like Lucas Black stole the movie. Disclaimer: This site does not store any files on its server.

Somewhat later, the Rangers return and arrest Rawlins and John Grady. Thornton cares about the story, I think, but he's not distracted by it. As per usual, the producer elbowed his way into the creative process, forcing Thornton to cut down the epic length of his film, which ran over three hours long, and most egregiously, replaced the score by Daniel Lanois with something by Marty Stuart. The next day finds him nearly naked, his horse and gun stolen. While Rawlins returns to his parents' ranch in Texas, Cole attempts to reunite with Alejandra over her family's objections. Later that evening, Cole shows up at the judge's home, troubled.

Far Away Alejandra's Phone Call 14. As the three are riding away from the town they are pursued, and Blevins separates from Rawlins and John Grady. Cole rides to Rawlins' family's ranch, where he asks his friend if he wants his horse back. The boy was raised for a significant part of his youth, perhaps 15 of his 16 years, by a family of Mexican origin who worked on the ranch; he is a native speaker of Spanish and English. The real subject of his movie is the feeling of being young, on horseback, in a foreign country, in trouble, and in love.
