Saw it in Woodstock tonight, just getting a fix on the wide open Texas landscapes was a rush, that in itself was a big part of what 3:10 to Yuma was missing. Great job, see it when you can.  Afro

Might as well start an official thread on this film. One thing sould be noted right up front this film is similar in a way to the non linear story line style of Leone, and definitely would benefit from multiple viewings. That said and knowing the writting style of Cormac McCarty I definitely would get the book and see what was condenced into the screen play.


to be continued.....

What's weird is that Joe posted in the original thread shortly before starting this new one. Uh, CJ, is time for you to go to the home? Cheesy

Well, this one is in the Other Film Topic, the other was in Off Topic and started discussing the trailer, I believe its a modern Western, should "officially" be in Other Films with all the other films, no?  Cool

By the way the ending of this has become quite controversial on imdb boards, lots of spoilers on there though.

Yeah. A guy at my work overheard me telling someone to go and see it and said, "What did you think about the ending?". I told him how I personally loved it, and he told me how he personally hated it. Weird.

If you loved it could you explain it?

It took me a few days of contemplation to figure this out,  its like a modern Spaghetti Western in fact its very similar to a GBU gone seriously wrong.

spoilers:












Bell is " the good" but he doesn't get his man nor does he solve the case, Chigur, "the bad" methodical killer like Angel Eyes, in fact he always "finishes" the job (he kills Moss's wife), Moss "the ugly", he makes seriously wrong decisions, and sort of sells out his wife. Only this time there is grand no settling of accounts, and possibly nobody gets the loot (though Chigur may have).

The ending itself.

Was it supposed to be poetic or just a total let-down?

They succeeded in the latter.

Well, I know it's straight from the book for one, and it's obviously supposed to be left up to viewer interpretation. To me, the constant passing on of greed and/or evil from generation to generation seemed to be a big theme (or at least to me). Bell couldn't stop Anton Chigurh (evil incarnate) from killing Moss or from getting away, which then allowed him to pass on greed to the next generation i.e. the boys who he bought a shirt from. In a sense, I think Bell felt that he failed, but in some ways he still had hope (in what or for what reason I'm not sure), but he knew his father would be waiting for him.

I don't know, FC. I need to see it again. I just thought the ending left the movie really open to personal interpretation and I liked that.

Even the motel shootout at the end that we don't see is somewhat like the Morton-Cheyenne train shootout that we don't see in OUTITW.

Ah Ha! That's why it didn't work.

I'll have to read the novel sometime soon.
