A classic

4 years, 2 months ago at Aug 9 11:12
The main reason why I wanted to watch this flick was because it was included in the list ‘1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die’. To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of such old Westerns and I believe that at least half of them could or should be removed from this otherwise really awesome list. Anyway, in this genre, I have to admit it, this movie was not bad at all and I definitely had a wea... read more

Cinema, at its core, extends the ordinary into the visionary; the exploration of an era or place that is unknown to us, the spectator, offering escapism into a perspicuous horizon, in this case antiquated, that differs wildly from our own.

Vienna has built a saloon outside of town, and she hopes to build her own town once the railroad is put through, but the townsfolk want her gone. When four men hold up a stagecoach and kill a man the town officials, led by Emma Small, come to the saloon to grab four of Vienna's friends, the Dancin' Kid and his men. Vienna stands strong against them, and is aided by the presence of an old acquaintance of hers, Johnny Guitar, who is not what he seems.

Slant's 100 Best Westerns of All Time (100 movies items)

"Nicholas Ray’s Johnny Guitar upends nearly every convention of the traditional western. Its eponymous hero (Sterling Hayden) is a sensitive soul who wields only six strings, not a six-shooter, and contrary to the panoramas for which the genre is known, the vast majority of the film occurs indoors, using the restricted settings to concentrate focus on the characters’ psychological states. But the biggest aberration of the film is that its conflict, propelled by belligerent men seeking to prev"

“Cinema, at its core, extends the ordinary into the visionary; the exploration of an era or place that is unknown to us, the spectator, offering escapism into a perspicuous horizon, in this case antiquated, that differs wildly from our own. "Johnny Guitar", although wholly removed from the banalities of the everyday and realistic, scathingly probes modern human conflicts, obsessions and rivalries that simmer beneath the surface of the stoic, granite-jawed patriarchal Western model; these frailties are unearthed in the politically strained, subtext-laden interactions and veiled,  embittered revelations of its fully-realised main characters, all of whom alternately conform to and subvert the sartorial and behavioural ideal of their respective genders. Framework psychologism elevates "Johnny ” read more

"First viewing - May 26th When people talk about Westerns this film doesn't tend to get discussed which is a shame. It's excellent all around, and I can't think of a single complaint for it. The only thing it was missing was that 10/10 feeling. I'd gladly watch it several more times."

"Joan Crawford outshines a startling array of character actors in one of Nicholas Ray's best pictures (no small statement of one of the finest American filmmakers). It is rather amazing he made The Savage Innocents only six years after this. Johnny Guitar is a film oozing with nuance and subtext, fragmented identities being puzzled together by the people who caused said fragmentation, luddites halting progress (though this one wants to stop the building of a railroad rather than building a wall),"

Anyway, in this genre, I have to admit it, this movie was not bad at all and I definitely had a weak spot for the damned thing.
