"You should have let 'em kill me, 'cause I'm gonna kill you. I'll catch up with ya. I don't know when, but I'll catch up. Every time you turn around, expect to see me, 'cause one time you'll turn around and I'll be there. I'm gonna kill ya, Matt."

Howard Hawks' Red River is fundamentally a Western appropriation of Mutiny on the Bounty. This superlative 1948 Western united director H... read more

A good movie

To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of John Wayne but since this movie was included in the '1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die' list, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, eventually, I have to admit that it is a real solid Western and it definitely deserves its reputation as a major classic in this genre. First of all, even though I haven't seen many movies starring Montgomery Clift, he was ... read more

First of all, even though I haven't seen many movies starring Montgomery Clift, he was a really fine actor and it was really neat to see him in his acting debut.

"Uudelleenkatselurintamalla yhden lempiohjaajani yksi arvostetuimmista töistä. Traumatisoitunut ja kireä John Wayne ajaa karjaa ottopoikansa Monty Cliftin, Walter Brennania esittävän Walter Brennanin sekä rounduptheusualsuspects-tyylisen sivuosacowboykaartin kanssa. Tökön prologin jälkeen Hawks pääsee vauhtiin ydinalueellaan, seikkailun sekä seikkailevan miesjoukkion sisäisen dynamiikan avaruudessa. Monty Clift nykii ja hieroskelee naamaansa kovin metodisesti klassisen rähinäremmin"

"In Red River, an intimate moral study forged from the extreme impositions fostered by such an unforgiving environment as the Old West, the psychology behind the rebellion between hard-nosed cattle rancher Thomas Dunson (John Wayne) and his would-be son turned adversary, Matthew Garth (Montgomery Clift), is expertly built and realized by Howard Hawks. The relationship between Garth and Tess Millay (Joanne Dru), who’s introduced 90 minutes into the film, is given ample time to develop, and by th"
