Spaghetti Monkey you are right on with this comment. My thought after watching it was like PETRIFIED FOREST as a western.
I thought this film was wonderful. In fact I’m surprised at so many ‘slow paced’ comments. I didn’t find it slow paced at all. It was a very effective suspense film and I never knew what was going to happen next or when the next thing would happen.
And, dare I say it about a movie with starring Kinski, somewhat subtle.
For ‘slow paced’ I usually think of a western that’s all build up with a big, long action finale. This film was not like that at all. Action occured throughout the entire movie rather than all of it spewing forth at the ending.
For those who haven’t seen it, if you are a fan of The Bounty Killer I think you would enjoy this film. Color me impressed.
PS. Korano, I can see why you might not get as much of a buzz from this one on the 2nd or 3rd viewing. What makes the film work so well is not knowing what will happen next and once you know all the twists and turns the tension is significantly lessened. I’d certainly like to see it again, but I’d personally wait a few years until I’d forgotten some of the details.
