"Buck" is for people trying to find their soul

If **How to Live Forever** is a pep rally for life, then **Buck** is about quiet confidence needed to live an authentic life. **Buck** Brannaman served as a technical advisor to Robert Redford’s last western **The Horse Whisperer.** Brannaman is a traveling cowboy who “helps horses with people problems.”

Brannaman should know about “people problems.” A roping rodeo prodigy by age eight, Brannaman was also a victim of child abuse from his backstage drunken father. Through self discipline and hard work, Brannaman broke the circle of domestic violence and raised a well adjusted daughter who is following in his footsteps.

The reviews for **Buck** has been mixed, divided between urban and rural critics. The rural reviews grasp the concept of cowboy stoicism, while urban critics find **Buck** to be superficial. Being conscious of one’s perspective is the key to understanding the true drama of **Buck.** This is a great documentary that focuses on the importance of the quiet moments of one’s authentic life.
