  • Blackthorn imagines a scenario for Butch's later years and gives us a different kind of Western - somber, reflective and set in the elevated plains and salt flats of Bolivia. show more

  • Watching Shepard work his pony down a snaking mountain pass, playing a mandolin and singing the blues, or seeing him sitting, stone-still, beneath a railroad water tank, waiting for something to happen - these are scenes to be cherished, from an actor who has found the soul of the character he's playing. show more

  • Director Mateo Gill's autumnal movie has elements of other late-era Westerns in its blood, but it isn't easily pigeonholed. There are shootouts and standoffs, as well as great scenes like one between the grizzled, perfectly cast Shepard and Rea discussing the cost of criminality and the changing morals of old men. show more

    I can sum up this movie in three words, BORING, BORING, and BORING. Don\'t beleive all the good reviews, they\'re from those artsy types (ore more accurately the artsy wannabes) who see good cinematorgraphy and think OMG I\'ve got to give this a good review even though it bored me to death. This western is boring and draggy, torture to watch, and the the intended plot never hits its mark.
