I was rather bored by it when I first saw it it 1984, being far too young & dumb to get it.
Now I finally saw it again (superb Criterion!) and think it is one of the best westerns
ever made. Most unusual, most satisfying - a real pleasure to see a totally different approach
for a change. And his decisions where to put the camera are just a joy to watch...

This was a surprisingly good western.  The acting, directing, cinematography and music scoring were very good.   Brando's directing seems to be polarizing but it was pretty good in my opinion.  I rate it a solid 8 out of 10...

A long time since I've seen it, I don't remember much.

My bad. I saw it on youtube.  Criterion has restored it.  I might get their version of it.   Very good western...

The Criterion blu is worth owning for the cinematography.

I think I'll pick a copy of this one up during the next Criterion 50% off sale. I watched it a while ago and remember thinking how nice it would have looked on a good quality print...
