The Western is given its long overdue oscar recognition with this deservingly complex and unromanticized directorial effort by Clint Eastwood. And is also the beginning of a long and (mostly) successful and critically acclaimed string of films that Eastwood would direct over the next few decades.
I love a film that rewards repeat viewings with new and different insights and interpretations, and this is one of those rare films. Disarmingly simple in its storyline, it tells the story of a trio of gun-men who travel to a small ranching town to kill a few cow hands who have had a bounty put on their head by a group of prostitutes after one of their number gets disfigured by one of the drunken customers. One of the gunmen is a reformed violent killer and outlaw, and he is accompanied by another aging ‘partner’ from the 'old days’ and an irritating brash young braggart.
The movie goes to great lengths to make the morality of each and every character more complex than the usual 'good guy/bad guy’ dichotomy, and the western conventions are treated with an unromantic approach that is refreshing in this genre. Certain lines keep getting repeated, i.e; “They had it coming”, which culminates in a beautiful scene near the final shootout where the young killer confesses that this is in fact his 'first killing’, and is obviously badly shaken up by it, and repeats the phrase once again, “They had it coming” to which Eastwood’s character replies “we all having it coming kid”.
Another bit I just picked up on my last viewing, was the repeated phrase that Eastwood says over and over, “I’m not like that anymore” (although he proves at the end, that he IS like that still), and when he is riding out of town and swearing oaths of vengeance against the townspeople, there is an american flag subtly waving in the background. I thought on my first viewing that the movie was a sort of apology by Eastwood for all the fascist/heroic/violent westerns and action films of his youth, but I’m beginning to think that it is more of a statement about America’s bloody past, and even though we might proclaim that 'we’re not like that anymore’, perhaps there’s more to the story. And I also got to thinking about Gene Hackman, and the significance of his 'building his home’ (even though it is extremely flawed), and his seemingly pathetic excuse at the end just before Eastwood blows his head off - “but I’m building a house” – and how our countries settling of the west was just that - building a home, and it’s not perfect, and we sometimes forget ourselves and do things we regret, and maybe we shouldn’t just whitewash our past, because it made us what we are today, good and bad.

warnings: none, unless you count the use of the word whore and bastard offensive, james is very sarcastic and i love it
note:Yes, I know I’m starting ANOTHER series. Sue me. I was excited to write this. Just a little set up for the series, I guess. This is not going to be exactly like Game of Thrones, mind you. This is going to be inspired by it, with my own twist to the story. I hope you all enjoy it! Feedback is always appreciated!
