It succeeds as an professionally presented film for adults. I am in no position to bellyache about how little it resembles Walter Farley's children's book. I Odessa (City On The Black Sea) - Bee Gees - Odessa read some of the book.
The book does not interest me. Neither does its set-up for whatever sequels interest me. They were, by most accounts, mediocre. This film, "The Black Stallion", holds a great deal more for me than most other pictures. The film is one of the most powerfully beautiful sets of moving images I have ever seen on screen conjoined with sumptuous music and gently mesmerizing performances.
Its editing awards, cinematography awards, and the awards for its music all were well deserved. From the wreckage of the "Drake" through the lengthy bonding of boy and horse on the island, through to their Black Box - Stallion - From The Deadnot a word is spoken. It is one of the longest, most intensely cast verbal negative spaces in film. Civilization is dispensed with, language is removed, layers of meaning are stripped; there is no intellectual comfort on which to fall Mamas Samba - Lawrence Welk - Aragon Trianon Memories. Into that emptiness fall the sound of waves and wind and rain as though natural extensions of Carmine Coppola's exquisite score.
The film's soundtrack is wonderfully uncomplicated and moving. The island sequences are visited by small groups of instruments in turn -- a harp here, primitive percussion there, minimal woodwinds; no brass intrudes for a long time -- in musical experiments of loneliness yielding to companionship that echo the tentative meetings of the boy and the horse.
Such negative spaces abound in "The Black Stallion", carved from the soundtrack the roar and crush of sound in the midst of the final race sequence blur out into a blissful, quiet emptiness touched lightly by flute and brasswashed clean of visuals for Eagles - The Long Run bulk of one critical scene, horse and boy, the centers of attention, disappear, literally, and focus is on the tiniest details of ticking watch hands and empty sheets of translucent night rainand opened at great lengths in the dialogue: Alec's mother responds to her son's plea with a tortured delay and Teri Garr, in remarkable performance, draws out her strangely active non-speech for many long seconds before her two-word reply closes this particular negative space with the thunderclap of a rushing locomotive and the thrust of a guitar as the soundtrack slams back in.
The final burst of joy from the island sequence's soundtrack is so magnificent, so full and compelling, it is odd to listen, carefully, to its hesitant introduction as the horse Black Box - Stallion - From The Dead permits the boy to mount: small flicks at the harp joined by a reed or two before the tympani knock insistently to tell us something miraculous has happened.
And we need that wake up call: We have to come up for air. We see only six legs and, then, much boiling and thrashing in a scene that is as intimate and anticipatory as only the best love scenes ever filmed. The charging aerial streamings and broad panning shots that follow the boy and the horse and the forces of nature, the sand and ocean through which they tear, convey as deep a physicality as in any love scene.
This film, with its powerful sensory immersion, offers much about love and tenderness and touch and connectedness to an audience inclined to forget that most motive force in life comes through the union of dissimilar entities and the experience of Blue Fox - John Mayall - Back To The Roots is, at its fullest, not (Theres) Always Something There To Remind Me - Burt Bacharach - The Very Best Of Burt Bacharach about bodies conjoined: it's also about longing and belonging and trust and completion though union with one's chosen and preferred.
It offers every amended glory possible in any sexual relationship that proceeds past involvement of Stand Under - Three Fish - The Quiet Table plumbing'. In both illustration and disclosure of why this film means so much to me, I might as well mention I was 38 the last time I watched this movie, my first viewing of it in many years.
The young lady with me had never heard of it. When, at its end, she turned to hot, liquid sunshine in my arms, weeping in amazement, not fully understanding why she'd been so moved, we began a romance that has refused easy definition ever since -- but I cannot imagine a stronger bond. The magic of this film perfectly mirrored the best possible feelings within us.
A kid's movie? Sure, if you say so. This is a wonderful film. It will not push or drag you. But watch -- and listen -- closely and let it take you where it can and it will amaze you. Sign In. Keep track of everything you watch; tell your friends.
