That's cool, but I seem to recall you writing Lean off and slating us fans repeatedly in the past.

I don't recall what I have exactly said, but it seems I was right now that my knowledge of this director's work is expanding. He's a very good director, which I never doubted. He's not just a cinema great like Fellini, Bunuel, Resnais: that's all.

7/10
A good Western. It doesn't provide anything new, but it recycles all basic elements very well. It is an American style Western, and that may be a trouble to some one; I thought it might be to me, but when I watched the film, it didn't bother me that much. Main characters are not bigger than life like in Leone's films, but more like real people. The pace is nice. It could've been faster but it's fine like this.

One thing that I have to mention is the violence. It is maybe the most realistic that I've seen in any Western. Buildups are not drawn out like in Leone's and Peckinpah's films, nor the victims spin like hell, nor fall down in slow-motion. Of course there is build up before the end fight but it's in real time. In this movie, if you get hit with a rifle it can cause you a brain damage, unlike in most of movies. The gun fight is great and very realistic.
Well put O0 I guess it's my fourth favorite of post-1990 westerns.

Are we talking about the 60s genius Resnais, or the Resnais who made all that crap in the 80s? And what's he done of any interest since? Now if you'd said Rivette . . . .

What movie are you talking about? and is the quote really from yourself? (which means: are you saying "well put" to yourself??)

Are we talking of the Fellini of the '50's and '60's or the Fellini of the '80's?

Well, exactly. The thing with Lean is, he didn't have a good period and a not-so-good period. There's a consistency to his work, and consistency is a quality that very few directors have achieved (obviously SL was among those few).

This being the gentleman who thinks his early films were generally good and then his epics were either bad or mediocre.

Believe me, Lean in the 80s is heaps more interesting than Fellini or Resnais in the 80s.

Crap. Didn't realise that my review doesn't mention the title. That's because it's from the Open Range thread.

No, it's just that is playing it safe. But a Fellini's failure is much more interesting than a Lean success.
