a great indie film when they were not popular
26 March 2005 | by crivera_ojoSee all my reviews

It is not a typical western in that it does not intend to glorify gunfighters. This movie felt like part of a documentary since the sets seemed so realistic and the characters were very credible.

The movie seems to be made with a tight budget, whether that is the fact or not I don't know. I also loved the violent scenes, fights, gun-play and so on.

Even though most western movie fans know the outcome of the life of Billy the Kid, the outcome does not seem predictable the way Michael Pollard plays the character.

I also loved the character of Lee Purcell (Berle), she was amazing and very credible. Though her character displayed a displeasing picture of violence against women she also was able to show the strength and character of the woman in the film (Berle).

I definitely recommend it, if you are tired of seeing those puffed up and testosterone injected westerns we are all used to seeing.
