"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

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

“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 a really fine actor and it was really neat to see him in his acting debut. Concerning John Wayne, in my opinion, he is usually seriously boring but this movie belongs to the few exceptions in which he played a much more complex character than usual. In fact, his character was at the same time the hero but also the villain of this tale and it made him quite spellbinding to behold. Concerning the st” read more

"23.4. (Teatteri/35 mm) Tajuttoman yliarvostettu, muttei silti yhtään hassumpi karjanajoraina. Punaisessa joessa on niin vahva naishahmo, että tämä hädin tuskin huomaa olkaansa ammuttua nuolta. Navajo Joessa puolestaan näemme Burt Reynoldsin intiaanina, mutta se onkin sitten jo oma tarinansa. Parasta tässä taisi olla, että John Waynea vedettiin lettiin."
