I caught this at the theater and I am pre-ordering it for my iTunes. That’s how much I liked it. If you are a fan of classic Westerns this is simply a must see, but I think a fan of any genre is going to like this. There is not a lot of build up and they get right to the conflict, which I like. There is a plot twist I REALLY want to tell you about, but I won’t be that guy. Tim Blake Nelson deserves an Oscar but won’t get it. But he deserves it. And Stephen Dorff’s villain is reminiscent of Bruce Dern at his most villainous. Great movie. You should watch.
