    Chinese-American director Chloe Zhao recreates her longing for the life out of urban civilization through young rodeo cowboy riding a bronco in South Dakota. Brady suffers an injury from a tragic riding accident. His sister has a learning disability but is adorable. Struggling to live a hard life and to recover from suffering, his will is frustrated every time. [#i_]The Rider [_i#]looks like an impressionist version of the novels by Cormac McCarthy, Larry McMurtry and Annie Proulx. The narrative centers on Brady´s struggle, but its direction is not clear. It may be regarded as a reflection on the dangers facing life in the countryside or as a depressing portrait of the deprived life. Zhao describes it in a documentary manner, featuring nonprofessional actors. The film secures the integrity and authenticity through the scenes beyond the drama. [JANG Byungwon]
