A landmark western

"A gun is a tool, Marian; no better or no worse than any other tool: an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that."

Shane may be a vehement western due to its adherence to a number of the genre's tropes, but it's a film which belies its genre. By the 1950s, the American western genre had become predictable, with westerns growing to the ... read more

A classic

To be honest, I didn't really know what to expect from this movie but since it is a classic, I thought I should give it a try. Well, basically, even though the damned thing has a really solid reputation, I thought it was a rather standard Western story. Indeed, it was a generic tale about some simple farmers who are bullied by some evil cattle baron and, of course, a mysterious stranger passes by ... read more

my half assed 2018 movie diary (40 movies items)

" Absolutely stunning and gorgeous cinematography Like completely breathtaking. George Stevens brought the ruggedly wondrous terrain of Wyoming to colorful life in this movie and it's a spectacle to behold. Certain times during the film I just wanted to pause to take in the landscapes and the full extent of their beauty. That's a key part of a western imo- the director has to make you fall in love with the wild west and all its brutality and this is what happens here Alan Ladd gives a badass"

100 Greatest Golden Age Hollywood Films (100 movies items)

"George Stevens was a versatile director who worked in many different genres from Musicals to Screwball Comedies, Melodrama to Biblical Epic, and though he notched up many acclaimed films across his career, there are very few I actually like. Whether there is something about Stevens' directorial style or whether it's just the material he worked with, I seem to have a disconnect with his oeuvre. But in 1953, Stevens made his masterpiece with the terrific 'Shane', a film with which I have no qualms"
