A powerful study of mob mentality...

"I saw your face. It was the face of a depraved, murderous beast. Only two things ever meant anything to you: power and cruelty. You can't feel pity. You can't even feel guilt. You knew they were innocent, but you were crazy to see them hanged. And to make me watch it. I could've stopped you with a gun, just as any other animal can be stopped. But I couldn't do it because I'm a coward. Aren't you ... read more

The great Spencer Tracy said in Fury!*** This review contains spoilers ***When I think to myself what are the most pessimistic films, The Ox-Bow Incident is one of the first to come to mind. This is the type of film you never forget. Whenever I hear a story in the news related to mob mentality, I always think ‘The Ox-Bow Incident’! In the same way how any news story of political corruption or ... read more

50 Angry Cowboys

Great movie with good strong monodimensional old school (old indeed, 1943) characters and a better premise.
Some years later (14 I think) Fonda will protagonize 12 Angry Men and explore the reasonable doubt in a jury. Here there aren´t twelve jurors, there are like forty asking for blood.

This isn´t better but is cruder and nastier and I loved it.

" Notes: To be honest, I’m usually not a huge fan of such vintage Westerns but this one actually really grabbed me. Indeed, it might seem to be a short and simple Western without much action and lots of dialogues instead. It’s too bad I saw it on YouTube without subtitles and I did struggle to follow the dialogues so I will probably re-watch it at some point.

A classic

“I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this movie but since it was included in the ‘1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die’, I was quite eager to check it out. To be honest, I’m usually not a huge fan of such vintage Westerns but this one actually really grabbed me. In fact, it might seem to be a short and simple Western without much action and lots of dialogues instead. It’s too bad I saw it on YouTube without subtitles and I did struggle to follow the dialogues so I will probably re-watch it at some point. Anyway, it turned out to be some kind of Western version of ‘12 Angry Men’ and even though it probably didn’t go so deep, it was still really effective and often quite fascinating to watch. Back then, it was actually quite a controversial movie, it was even a flop wh” read more

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

"William Wellman’s hard-edged, stark style made him ideally suited for adapting The Ox-Bow Incident, a stripped-down moral drama that shows off the director’s facility with both crime fiction and low-budget westerns. In it, two drifters, Gil (Henry Fonda) and Art (Harry Morgan), end up joining a posse of enraged townspeople when one of their local ranchers is murdered by rustlers. The mob immediately whips itself into a frenzy as they seek someone to punish, and though Gil and Art initially j"
