Es dificil huir de tu pasado

Es el penúltimo western de Anthony Mann, y muchos lo consideran el mejor (lo que entiendo que es decir mucho).

Link Jones (Gary Cooper) oculta un pasado del que no está orgulloso. Le ha costado mucho tiempo y esfuerzo convertirse en un honrado ciudadano, felizmente casado y padre de 2 hijos pequeños, que ha sido encargado por su comunidad para ir a la ciudad en busca de una maest... read more
View all Man of the West reviews
In one of his last and finest performances, Gary Cooper plays the reformed outlaw Link Jones, who is unwittingly drawn back into his criminal past when his train is held up by his former gang. One of a string of 1950s western masterpieces directed by the great Anthony Mann—whose complex mise-en-scène brought a dark psychological intensity to the genre—MAN OF THE WEST stands as one of the filmmaker’s most monumental works, achieving a rugged grandeur of almost mythic proportions. Among the film’s most famous admirers: Jean-Luc Godard, who named it the best film of 1958.

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

"Anthony Mann’s Man of the West carries with it an unshakeable aura of finality in its world-weary temperament, bringing a genre which would quickly find new modes of expression—whether in the mold of a spaghetti, revisionist, neo, or acid western—to its logical endpoint. This simultaneous sense of exasperation and dedication in the face of progress is reflected in the demeanor of Gary Cooper’s aging, reformed outlaw, Link Jones, whose proactive measures to reconcile personal principles a"

100 Greatest Golden Age Hollywood Films (100 movies items)

"Anthony Mann's late-era Western 'Man of the West' was largely ignored or reviled upon its original release. Opening with a rousing theme and images of a man astride his horse against inspiringly epic backdrops of the American west, 'Man of the West' initially seems as if it is about to offer us a classic Western adventure but the mood quickly turns dark as cowboy Link Jones, on his way to hire a new schoolteacher for the community of Good Hope, is diverted when his train is hijacked by bandits.
