Slow West

The story of an adventurer by the name of Silas to accompany the dangerous journey along the entire U.S. border, 16-year-old boy named Jay Cavendish. Jay is looking for a girl in love with. They met by chance, a lone wolf, stray from the wolf pack and the hare caught in a wolf den. He could have let him die, could have killed, but clung to his throat, and went with him on the trail, helping to find hidden somewhere in love, seeing through the fields of hatred and forest of fear, firmly, not deciding what to do next with him and with yourself.

At first glance we have before us a simple story — the guy goes to the search for the beloved, for the sake of which gave full and rich life, on the wild West. Before us is a Western and at the same time a road movie. With the course of an Association with a film of brothers Cohen (well, that there are Kohanim) "true grit", well, except here is not a girl boy a number of nuances. But "West" is not as simple and straightforward as creation of the famous brothers.

Motive first. Looking for a woman.

The closer the film went to the climax, the do I appreciated opinion that the main conflict and "Disgusting eight", is the main character. She motivates Jay to the journey, loved them Cioaca and Indian, she victim of circumstances aim to hunters heads. Enjoyed this line finely and interesting.

The motive of the second. Philosophical.

It is noticeable that the authors are big fans of the movie "Dead man." At this indicates music, and the staging, and installation solutions. Not mention of thinking of heroes, for example, attitude of the Indians. The theme of the battle between man and nature here are not be as sharp and bright as in "Survivors", but way or otherwise have thought about human the world. I philosophical issues of why was reminded of "the Little Prince" (of course, with some reservations) — J. — Prince, Silas Fox.

The motif of the third. Genre.

The image of Silas is a very canonical — resembles characters Clint Eastwood: laconic, tough, lone wolf among the people. What to plot — it only first glance the simple story of times of the unconquered West, and desperate people and their vivid emotions and strong feelings. When it is thinking about being — as was  the"Dead man."

8 from 10

A good movie, which may not enough timing for full disclosure of images and a pair of interesting moves.

In any case, a pleasant discovery.

They met by chance, so maybe. A rabbit caught in a wolf den and a lone wolf straying from the wolf pack. He could give him to die, could kill, but not grabbed in throat, and went him the trail, helping to find hidden somewhere in love, seeing through the fields of hatred and the forest of fear, firmly, not decided that do with him with them.

He did not had to ask. Jay himself eagerly talked about the Roman aristocrat and commoner, which was broken by the shed blood of confessing in his naivete, he saw uncle — homewrecker, and the peasant girl that gave a kid in the magical delight, frankly reproaching him in the children's nonsense, knowing that the fragile body lives the same the fragile mind, and luck rules the firm will not noticed among the achievements of her admirer.

Silas and Jay, bandit and romantic — objects of natural selection on the vastness of the bloody fields, pirouetting through the trials, temptations and temptations to an unnamed goal under the "family" was evident for one and secret of another, only listening to Twitter simple-minded companion, as rich in soul as defenseless to counter anger carrying the wisdom that listens to it taciturn friend.

In this multi-genre picture Western is only a formal shell of the ideological and moral dramatic story has been formatted with the memories of Silas, obviously thankful that brought it with a trusting young man who, as strange as it sounds, it from much saved, bringing to the cherished goal.

The Director does not worn with my idea, just have the subject chosen for step by step, starting from the destruction of one family in the beginning of the film, and ending with the creation of a new family, in the end, obeying a seemingly straightforward motion, which does not one sharp turn, decorated with only the snow-capped peaks of the Rockies co, but and bright scenes, where in the case of the main characters interfere with the one, the other a dashing character with their moral unrest, causing a rough Association with the dramatic style of the Cormac McCarthy novel "horses, Horses" and sense a sarcastic reference to the other, strongly implying that one here is not a place, but without the demonic colors, like had the Coen brothers, but with comparable charisma of the actors, whether Fassbinder, Ben Mendelsohn, Rory McCann or Kodi Smith-McPhee with Karen Pistorius, whose work is marked by obvious storage capacity and groove depth.

Tarantino accent — a small detail of the artistic language of John McLean, owning all the tools of visual impact of natural and human origin, combining the detail of dialogue with the immensity of the starry night and the sobering morning for those who haven't the dead dusty day, ignoring the blackish things as separase on the heart wound salt of the broken bottle in the moment when the choice was not done a trembling female hand with a failed Shakespearean ending, which is... To it's worth a look.

I am writing these lines, being in some perplexity at about its relationship to "Slow West". With one side is not exactly dummy not bestalantny homage in the direction of the best specimens of the genre. With another, some fun moments, the more than anything like the original Director's finds, here is no. So, all the action takes place on the Wild West, but so well it could happen in our day somewhere in the village.

And is there is there action? In General a bit. The picture to its name, and hour we witness the insignificant road movie, accompanied by a voice-over that one another character that like casually alludes to final the supplier and screenwriter John McLean says that the Western — not only a desolate Prairie, the Indians, Yes riders in top hats on horseback. However, there were no surprises: firefight at least confused, is quite fast, not in an effort to place at least some emphasis (and ought to!).

However, in art there are paradoxes, and this picture is clear proof of that. Despite all the flaws, the slowness of the story in an amazing way makes the flaws of the tape only roughness on which to remember the time well not want.

What and want about it suits all same horses about the riders on them. McLean their full-length debut, the genre is not exactly revived, but we think that in the full-fledged Director with the taste it yourself still show. The more so a sense of proportion have he got the lyrics a bit, but owns, yeah and humor very good.

And, Yes, if someone for whatever reason, you say that Fassbender "pulls", show him this movie. Pull, even as it pulls!
