Concrete Cowboy

Concrete Cowboy ★★★★

I’ve always been fascinated by cowboy movies, but a focus on Black cowboys which seemed to have been forgotten by history and film/television studios, completely captures my attention. Glad to know this subculture’s story is being told. This reminds me of Nomadland with the use of non actors. It was very interesting to hear their personal stories and definitely strengthened the film. I’m happy  Ricky Staub chose to use the real Fletcher Street Cowboys both behind the scenes and on camera. Also, great performances from all the actors, especially the rising stars, Jharrel Jerome and Caleb McLaughlin. Idris Elba, as always, also made a stunning performance. It has its weaknesses, but overall a very enjoyable film.
