Time Out says

Ageing rodeo rider Lew Lathrop (Coburn) may not still be at his competitive best, but the cameraderie and womanising of the touring circuit continue to exert a strong pull when he makes a rare visit home to New Mexico to his estranged spouse Nettleton. Melancholy, slow, closely detailed post-Western drama which lets rip with the moralising at the close as Lew's partner Clete (Pickens) is trampled to death by a bucking bull. Coburn has a watchable charm, though Junior Bonner and J.W. Coop (both also from the early '70s) rode the same range with greater distinction.

This film is a real gem. James Coburn is as usual fantastic. The film itself is very reminiscent of the Steve McQueen film Junior Bonner, again a fantastic movie. If you into the dusty southern states of the USA, modern day cowboy life, and 70's cinematography, i promise you, you will not be dissapointed with this movie.
