In 1974 in the Soviet box office with noise excites minds flashed a picture about  the"decadent West". And was it what your heart desires — and the stately lady of pure blood, and aristocratic grace puffy position the ladies, and characters spider stinging the banks for their own ambitions of everyone who will be close. English establishment drew the author — smug arrogance two series play before the audience. The murder of the son of Lord Warbeck mystery gathered at the screen. Enclosed space, a limited number of people, the death of Sully sting, and transcendent drive reflections — who is who? The answer — "Purely English murder". Motif — explanation.

Today, in  the"Ballad of Lefty brown", we are dealing with an absolute identity with the events of 44 years ago. Here only changed the place, the time, the persons, the details of the crime. Sleuth or operas search business with no experience working drew Parallels between these tapes. Collate handwriting, brought patterns and comfort of the office, like puffing on Sherlock Holmes pipe, thought for a moment, comparing parts of the puzzle and then, through deduction, found the culprit. As there said Vasily Livanov the mouth of the character with Baker street? "I call these things "works on one tube"? True. Everything is easier.

The audience is a Western the Wild West. XIX century the end. Yankees "drank" taken from the Indians the land between yourself "practice" in their operation — who is sowing, cultivating, who grazes cattle breeding herds. In our fragment, pastoralists prevail over the farmers. However, though they don't think "God caught the beard" and their full of radiant light. Hunters to another man's cattle was always done. On all continents Udaltsov enough. Who? Loyko Zabar with"GOP-the company" laughed at"the camp leaves in the sky", 1976, Jack Nicholson, he That Logan "Bends of Missouri", 1976, "has hisal" someone else's. The complaint was heard in  the"War", 2002 directed by A. Balabanov — it is always our cattle stealing, he our blood enemy (R. Shamayev about A. Chugaeva). Geography — the Carpathians — North America — the Caucasus. And the time of the NINETEENTH and twentieth century.

So here — chasing the thieves of horses. Two elderly men sent by the trail. One — master, another — improvised, going with the acquirer hand hand 40 years. Reactions have inhibited, gray excusable shoots of past years. Catch up? Discourage horses from the dashing fellows? Guns in holsters, so serious. But and the thieves not today were born. Fight in fascinating battle emerges. Western blends in the crime drama depicts the Creator. The crime, the cover of that act, a billiard-ball in our pocket. A corrupt government we will be able here to consider, drink too much law, masking conscience — see the trembling hand of infirmity, is able to the act of a laugh and some kind. And all on the background of stunning views of Montana. In the sunset and sunrise, in the ashes of the scorching heat. Two hours a moment. As a breath of refreshing moisture.

In the result? Purely American murder in parallel "Purely English".

I have to say, I looked Lefty brown after the Brothers ' Sister, Ballad of Buster the Scruggs and reading a couple of unflattering reviews about "great Western" "the money was only enough to bill Pullman, the guy from Sons of Anarchy fifteen minutes Peter Funds." First and mood I was appropriate, Yes. the film does not promise anything special. A classic Western with lots of shooting the average plan, snatching revolvers no reason, Sheriff-Senator-Superman, Peter Fonda, which brings down the bad guys don't even breaking a sweat. Well and present background: it is assistant, funny old loser (Pullman), loving wife for the ranch, where Superman returns to have a rest from the usual superhuman Affairs, and other Suite. In short, the main Character and all the rest of them as a stone wall. Boring!

And suddenly, the impossible happens! The main character Stone Wall kills a man without behalf. That in principle, not maybe.

Stone wall turns out to be a Macguffin, a corpse in carpet the rump of the horse, and the whole entourage goes to the foreground. And it's incredible! They all the main characters. Previously, it was enough to hide behind the wall do not to bathe, you were at least forty years to sit there and now we have to live, to make my own choices.

Actually for me, the film and became a film about choice. The shadow man, 40 years of age a second room, about never mentioned when he wrote about his great partner makes a choice and starts to "cast a shadow", he no less (and can and more) steep than Superman. Wife Stone walls making the choice between money and husband my husband (although, as I knew she received and other), and a drunkard-a friend shows that it still be useful for something.

The film is very good in part of the script and drama although I thought professional actors there are not many. Just a little more than 10, and the rest — the crowd of re-enactors in authentic interiors and beards to belt. However, this even more of a plus than a minus. All the story is how much more local and close to earth than those two film that I mentioned at the beginning. Plus, from it blows revisiontime classic westerns of the 70-ies-80-ies without any frills type of slow-motion shots or "green wall" but a great script, filming on the historical nature and actors that I want to believe.
