It is indeed totally stunning, and it’s got me thinking about Westerns. Among other things:
- Appaloosa, the recent Western with Ed Harris, Viggo Mortensen, and Jeremy Irons that I totally enjoyed.
- High Noon and Rio Bravo still explain everything.
- Following on: Howard Hawks (who directed Rio Bravo). I feel like I want to understand him and his work better. Note also the Hawksian woman.
What clicks in your mind when you think about Westerns? Any recent movies I ought to see? Any other fun stuff out there?
Update: Yes, this post was Tim-bait, and whoah yes, he delivers. I’m considering just pasting his comment into the body of the post and moving what I wrote to the comments…
