The demise of western movies is a sad, if inevitable result of a culture that has lost contact with its past, the landscape that surrounds and defines us, and the proud, independent spirit that allowed settlers to overcome monstrous odds and forge a nation.
In a recent post on my film blog I lamented the dearth of good western movies these days and, simultaneously, celebrated some of my favorite titles, films that truly deserve the designation "classic".
Head over to Cinema Arete and give my essay a read.
And, by all means, offer your own suggestions for a roster of "Best of..." western films.
See you there!
