Watch the short version. There may be a debate on which version is the best (hint: the short) but I don't think anybody will deny that the short version is much, much easier on the viewer.

With so few Westerns being made the last 30 years, compared to the 150 Westerns produced in 1950 alone any new Western receives a lot of attention here.

Spike check out Blackrobe if you've never seen it, it's more of a Frontier Epic taking place in New France circa mid or late 1600's if I remember right.

What has 2017 changed for/in you? Almost all of your one-line reviews are spot on.

They were always, what changed for/in you that you did not recognize this before 2017? ;)

All in all, I think we always had a similar taste.

I prefer the shorter version. The longer version adds a few nice details, but is problematic for the rhythm. It is a quite good western. 8/10

I just don't see that, a problem with rhythm. least you liked "A" version  :o

I saw the movie once (long version) 5 years ago, and gave it a 9/10. But since then, I never had the slightest desire to see it again. Is t just because of the length? Is it because emotionally heavy movies are not easy to watch frequently? Or is it because the movie has gone down in my estimation over the past few years even though I have not seen it again? I do not know the answer. Whatever it is, I don't feel  any interest whatsoever in seeing it again anytime soon.

Length. Personally I would stand for another hour of it  8)

Nah! Though to be fair, I'm a lover of long epic films anyway, so I'm going to be pro the longer cut. I'm not even sure I could watch the shorter cut now, I'd rather have the full option every time.

No not seen that, I'll look into it thanks.

The most significant change is that the short version doesn't have the whole paranormal/spiritual thing. Which is for the best. Terrific film anyway (both cuts).

I need to watch this again. Surprised no one has mentioned John Barry's excellent score.

I do laud it in my review up thread.

I own the CD :)

Ah good point - that's the second time I've been called out recently for not reading threads closely enough  ???

Fantastic score.

The "Kevin's Gate" comment is pretty funny - apparently it was also applied to "Waterworld" as well...
