By chance, I saw Jeff Bridges on Letterman, Leno, Headline News and so I thought, “Enough already, I’ll go see the movie.”

The visuals are wonderful such as the fall leaves used as a backdrop while Maguire rides Seabiscuit.  There is the great irony of how Charles Howard’s fortune is the same thing that brings him deep sadness.  There is the great campfire scene of Jeff Bridges and Chris Cooper, and the balcony scene when Howard  looks at the lady who is to become his future wife.  There are many, great scenes of Maguire and Seabiscuit as they heal themselves.  In the end, the movie talks about healing and this is why this movie should be added to your must-see list.

What to look for.  What are the purposes of the following?

  1. The black and white photos of the Depression.
  2. The humor/contrast of Bridges’ bicycle repair shop and the arrival of the automobile in front of his shop.
  3. The repetition of Bridges in his son’s room.
  4. The dialogue that talks about not throwing a life away because it has been hurt.
  5. The repetition of the comic radio announcer.
  6. The parallel between Seabiscuit’s female companion and Bridge’s second wife.
  7. The repeated shot of Seabiscuit looking at his competition.
  8. The historical significance of the story.
  9. The detail of the injured and wrapped leg.
  10. The detail of the food on Pollard's plate.

These are just some things to look for that were artistically added to give the movie many levels of depth.

Mostly, however, are the three, great performances of the three, leading actors.  Unless of course, horses or any other great animal actor can be nominated for awards!  :-)
