Hey, I didn't object when you wanted to parse the word "trilogy." ;)

Who's objecting? Quite the contrary, as I think that the only western element in this movie is Newman's Stetson. Only that people have been posting here movies of all kinds with only a weak relationship to western and you never said a word (as far as I can remember). So why ripvanwinkling now?

Usually the mods take care of re-directing erroneous posts so there is no reason to speak up. But the issue of "modern Westerns" isn't, apparently, obvious to everyone, so it might as well be dealt with now.

Still you didn't take the chance to expand on the subject when it was offered to you by CJ:

I said call NCFOM a crime film! Which is what it is. BTW, I'd call Hud a drama, which is what IT is.

It was the No Country For Old Men thread, fer cryin' out loud! It wasn't the Let's Debate Semantics thread. I seem to remember that your trilogy remarks went into a thread made especially for them.

Right, and except for responding to your hectoring ;D, I've tried to keep my remarks germane to the topic.

And I was pointing out  at the fact that you didn't germinate so much in NCFOM.  :-[

It's funny that jenkins doesn't think this is a western, yet it's listed in The Rough Guide to Westerns book. Great book by the way with a lot of western film information. This is perfect for anybody's library.

I don't think you understand the film. The father is vindicated, Hud is shown up. The key is Patricia Neal's final take on the guy at the end. The film is interesting because you think it's going to take Hud's side but ends up turning on him.

And it's not a Western.

Tom Jones (1966) is mentioned substantially in several chapters of a Literary Criticism book i have (as much as the book, possibly more so), as well as mentions of OUATITW.

Now i don't think i would consider either of them "Literature".
