"Ride in the Whirlwind" (1967/Monte Hellman)

Companion piece to Hellman’s The Shooting. Alledgedly influenced by the JFK assassination. It is also an Acid western or surreal western. Very strange one. Shot on a VERY low budget that might have even been cheaper than a fistful of dollars. Starring Jack Niocholson and Cameron Mitchell. Directed by Monte Hellman.

Nicholson wrote this one.

Ive seen the first portion of the film and I have to be honest when I say…Im in no hurry to see the rest. Granted theres always a chance Id dig it but…

Ive heard Tarantino loves this, I thought it was pretty boring though.

Good and unusual western, but The Shooting is the masterpiece.
