A good movie

Since I’m huge fan of Clint Eastwood’s work, I was really eager to check this flick. First of all, it was not surprising that for his sophomore directing effort Clint Eastwood decided to direct a Western.

"Sergio Leone’s influence is obvious in the baroque excesses of High Plains Drifter. Clint Eastwood’s aim, though, isn’t to pay homage to the genre but to usher in its apocalypse.

Where his later gunfighters are pockmarked with an increasingly frail human"
