Turns out channeling Wes Anderson in a Western can be quite amusing
My reaction to this film was a strange one. I think I expected it to be boring so I guess I distracted myself before I even needed or wanted to. The truth is, this is a sweet and exciting short tale of unrequited love and a bounty on someone's head being intertwined. The colour on screen was beautiful and I liked Smitt-McPhee's presence. Hopefully I'll watch it with some more energised intent in the future and appreciate it a little more.
It is a good western movie but I can't stand the fact the kid made all that journey for a girl who didn't love him back, and not enough with that, she's the one who puts an "end" to the kid's dream, that's harsh and really bugs me.
