Renton47's rating of the film The Black Stallion

Sure it's gorgeous and all, but what good is technicality when it masks some dangerous lies? Like a disseminated one, that an animal has value only insofar that a human gives it some. Until the final minute I had hopes this would undermine the unjustified 2nd half, a death to challenge the taming of the uncivilised. At least the actor seems to suffer as much as the horses.
