A powerful study of mob mentality...

"I saw your face. It was the face of a depraved, murderous beast. Only two things ever meant anything to you: power and cruelty. You can't feel pity. You can't even feel guilt. You knew they were innocent, but you were crazy to see them hanged. And to make me watch it. I could've stopped you with a gun, just as any other animal can be stopped. But I couldn't do it because I'm a coward. Aren't you ... read more

50 Angry Cowboys

Great movie with good strong monodimensional old school (old indeed, 1943) characters and a better premise.
Some years later (14 I think) Fonda will protagonize 12 Angry Men and explore the reasonable doubt in a jury. Here there aren´t twelve jurors, there are like forty asking for blood.

This isn´t better but is cruder and nastier and I loved it.

The great Spencer Tracy said in Fury!*** This review contains spoilers ***When I think to myself what are the most pessimistic films, The Ox Bow Incident is one of the first to come to mind. This is the type of film you never forget. Whenever I hear a story in the news related to mob mentality, I always think ‘The Ox Bow Incident’! In the same way how any news story of political corruption or ... read more

2018: Films I've Watched in January (24 movies items)

"First Watched 1/23/2018 This is a great film with some fantastic performance but man oh man it will crush your heart and destroy your soul. At least that's how it was for me. I mean that is good in the sense that I am not completely desensitized to suffering and pain of others in films but man does it just really made me fall to my knees. F**k man what else is there to say. . . . "

"1/5/17 Superb western drama that, remove the horses, could easily be a play. Henry Fonda stars as a part of a posse looking for the killers and rustlers of a local cattleman only for the hunters to turn into a lynch mob when they come across three men. This bleak, cautionary tale of the dangers of vigilantes is only 75 minutes long but packs more of a punch in its short running time than most epic tales."
