Watched it a few days ago, wrote a review that will be published in due time by lordradish
I liked the film better this time than I did before, probably because the rather slow mid-section irritated me more when I was twenty years younger.
You become a bit more patient with age and this time around I felt quite comfortable with the deliberate pace
Nice directional touch during the opening massacre: Oates and his lieutenant having a quiet conversation inside while outside the shooting goes on
There was a guy here on the forum a week or so ago, who asked about the depiction of women in westerns (I don’t remember exactly what he wanted to know); the depiction of Hariette Hartley’s character is quite interesting: being a sophisticated lady, she feels attracted to the muy macho barquero, played by Lee himself, the proverbial man who would trail her by the hair into the forest.
Well, in this movie he takes her into the woods
And then rips off her clothes
