    I like most of the classics and modern westerns but I'm a big fan of the revisionist westerns like:
    Culpepper Cattle Co
    Dirty little Billy
    McCabe and Mrs.Miller
    Most of Peckinpahs westerns Ride and High Country, Wild Bunch, Pat Garret and Billy the Kid
    I was able to check out a few famous western sets in Durango Mexico area in 2001. I was scouting locations for a western that never came together, the local film commission was very helpful but security was a major issue that couldn't be resolved.

    I love most of what's already been mentioned. The Unforgiven is probably near the front of the pack for me. I just love that movie. It gets better with age.

    The Outlaw Josey Wales gets my vote. We have a 6'X4' poster (in French) in our studio.

    I love Unforgiven as well, but the kid's performance kinda takes me out of it. It feels way overacted to me. A very off-the-shelf character that Clint should have picked up on, and made the adjustments. IMHO

    The rest of the performances were stellar.


    And of course, the film took home 4 Oscars and had 5 other nominations, so my point is probably moot.

    I look at it this way, even his character (Schofield Kid) was just a role he was playing. He was always trying to come off as someone that he wasn't so I didn't mind his overacting, it seemed to fit. Once he pulled the trigger we finally saw his true self and I thought he played that part just fine.

    Wow, there's a throw back!!

    C'era una volta il West - a flop in the US theaters, but huge in Europe/Italy.

    I had forgotten that one.


    Found this blurb about it ...

    In 2009, it was named to the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress for being “culturally, historically or aesthetically” significant and will be preserved for all time.

    "Blood Meridian," by Cormac Mccarthy. Hopefully they don't screw it up whenever it gets made.
    Not a big fan of "Once upon a time in the West" .
