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

The duels and fights in westerns, are so transfigurated by stereotypes, style, emotions, and the tradition of genre; that we tend to see neat realism in any vague aproximation to reality.

"First viewing - Feb. 15th Growing up my dad would watch Shane whenever it was on TV, but for some reason I never managed to watch it with him. Even more curious is the fact that every time I found him watching it the film was at the end. So I've always known how the last minute or two play out, but not the rest of the film. Luckily it popped up on Starz this month and I was able to finally give it a look. The film is a classic for a reason, and I can't find anything to fault in it. The story, t"
