I just saw "Doc."  

Did not like it at all. Waaay too much heavy dialogue, too little action, everything way too serious, and virtually no score other than the nice mariachi band in an early saloon scene. The movie, as well as the Doc & Wyatt  performances by Keach and Yulin, are easily my least-favorite of all the Doc/Wyatt/GAOKC films.

The only thing I liked about the film is that like Leone films, everything is "dirty," rather than the freshly scrubbed look of some AW's. That is the only decent thing about the film. Other than that, it is a complete waste of time.

I rented it off iTunes. I had a laugh when after watching the movie, I read iTunes' description of the film: "A fanatically accurate retellling of the familiar Wyatt Earp/Doc Holliday story in Tombstone..." If I began to discuss all the inaccuracies (just in the actual Gunfight) I'd run outta the character limit  Wink, so I won't bother. Suffice it to say that the movie is as inaccurate as just about all the others that are purportedly about the Wyatt/Doc story. (As far as I recall, the two films which depict the Gunfight most accurately are "Tombstone" and "Wyatt Earp" [which, before I saw "Doc" were my least favorite of all the Wyatt/Doc films]).

The version I saw is also 96 minutes

Does anyone know whether it is in fact the El Paso set from FAFDM, as cigarjoe suggested? (I would hate it if they defiled that classic set on this awful a film  Wink )

Saw it some months ago.

All I've got to say is that DJ spoiled us with some really nice stills.

5/10

I think it is a good film. One of the most extreme of the 70s revisionist westerns, and at times a bit too pretentious.

But I like Doc to a certain extent. A 6 or maybe 7/10 film

Time for a re-watch

You're welcome.

In summation: Good visuals, shame about the story.

That's a classic recipe for boredom. Which is what I remember about my watching this movie twice.
