Every person who supervises anyone should see the documentary film Buck, which received the U.S. Documentary Competition Award at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. A first effort for writer and director Cindy Meehl, it is available in streaming video and DVD from Netflix, iTunes, Amazon and Blockbuster.
This film is about horses, but much of it relates even more to human beings and how they can most effectively approach and influence others. The simple, homespun philosophy of trainer Buck Brannaman is a clear message which should reverberate with all of us, even if we have no interest in horses.
