Wild Beauty: Mustang Spirit Of The West – Review. By Richard Schertzer.
Avis and her “family”-type crew embark on a journey in defense of wild horses. The filmmakers see the horses being dangerously herded and rounded up by helicopters and driven into small, claustrophobic enclosures thus giving the animals an increased sense of fear and anxiety.
Avis is able to do so much with so little in her filmmaking style and reveals the true horror that these horses face with a magnificently filmed framework and some insightful themes that keep the audience interested.
Her sensitive take on a very emotional topic is something that proves to be extremely noteworthy, as her cause is just and contrite. While many documentaries seem shallow, expose-like and self-indulgent, Avis has an unmitigated passion that shines from start to finish during the runtime of the film.
Avis is able to take a triumphant stance without even trying and begins her career as a documentarian to be reckoned with. Getting involved with such a project with majestic creatures and powerful visual imagery is enough to make a change in society.
It’s almost impossible to find any flaw in the film with such a well-crafted call to action that brings tears to the eyes as well as justice for horses everywhere. I certainly enjoyed this film and I’m sure you will, as well.
