Village 8 Louisville Exclusives presents 'Wild Horse, Wild Ride'
Print this page

Kentucky is well-known for three things: bourbon, bluegrass, and horses. Hell, we boast “the most exciting two minutes in sports” every year – an event so exciting that even the Queen will show up to rub shoulders with O.J. Simpson! Horses are brilliant, majestic creatures, born to run free under the sun. After all, all great things must be allowed their freedom, for to restrain that would be nothing short of a travesty. Yes? What's that? I'm mistaken? Of course – dominion over the animals – it's in the Bible. Again: this is Kentucky, yes? Nothing wrong with taking a beautiful, strong-willed animal and “breaking its spirit.” Hurrah for humanity! We're number one! The entirety of nature is at our disposal, for our exploitation, entertainment, and ego-stokage.

Now that that's out of the way, I'll tell you about today's topic: Wild Horse, Wild Ride

, a documentary which opened today at Village 8 Theaters as part of the Louisville Exclusives series. It tells the stories of three people – Charles, George, and Wylene – all tasked with taming a wild mustang in only three months for a Texas horse competition. In the process, all involved learn valuable lessons about life, love, perseverance, friendship, and the importance of further isolating ourselves from the purity of nature for the sake of entertaining other rednecks.

Wild Horse, Wild Ride

is scheduled to play at Village 8 Theaters for a week, ending on Thursday, November 15 – but this is subject to extension. Village 8 is located at 4014 Dutchmans Lane. Further theater information and showtimes can be found at the Village 8 website.

About Allan Day

There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
