In 1889 German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche witnessed the whipping of a horse while traveling in Turin, Italy. He tossed his arms around the horse's neck to protect it then collapsed to the ground. In less than one month, Nietzsche would be diagnosed with a serious mental illness that would make him bed-ridden and speechless for the next eleven years until his death. But whatever did happen to the horse? This film, which is Tarr's last, follows up this question in a fictionalized story of what occurred. The man who whipped the horse is a rural farmer who makes his living taking on carting jobs into the city with his horse-drawn cart. The horse is old and in very poor health, but does its best to obey its master's commands. The farmer and his daughter must come to the understanding that it will be unable to go on sustaining their livelihoods. The dying of the horse is the foundation of this tragic tale.

Kind of a shame really because its got a decent cast: L Diamond Phillips was great as the whore smacking pimp and Kari Wuhrer's nudity was just fucking great.

A nicely grounded more realistic plot and even the typically over-the-top action sequences feel more believable.It also boasts my favourite title sequence to date and an excellent choice of song to accompany it.The final act feels a little long, which is often a symptom of any movie in which the main villain is out if the picture sometime before the rest of the story is completed. And that is my only "criticism" which barely even qualifies as a nitpick at that. Not just an excellent Bond movie but an excellent movie full-stop.
