Arthouse Western
Verified purchase
The star of the movie was truly Dwight Yoakam whose character was a frontier Bible preacher, abusive, and alcoholic. Not the best screenplay but artsy, gritty film work (reminded me at times of an episode from the X-Files). I particularly liked the exchange between the lead actress (Lizzy Caplan - who looked, at least early in the film, to be accessorized by The Buckle), and Yoakam (in his prairie church building with no side walls), firing Bible references at each other (not quoting the verse, just the reference). The soundtrack by Ray Wylie Hubbard was superb, especially "The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse." Kristofferson had only a few scenes, but always a natural, especially in a western. Favorite quote: "I was always a lover, despite the killings." Recommended for its entertainment value.

Feeble attempt at a western.
Verified purchase
Despite the thin plot and a screenplay that appeared to have been written by a High School kid, a few of the actors did the best they could to put some lipstick on this pig. It’s been a long time since I saw a western movie that made the old spaghetti westerns look like art. Jumbled scenes mixed with poor lighting and, at some points, a lack of authenticity for the time period. This movie was better than nothing but not one I would want to watch again in the future.

Not your typical western at ALL!
Verified purchase
Not a Roy Rogers type of western to watch with the kids!! (I knew that before I bought it however). I enjoyed it! Very interesting. Kind of a horror-movie quality to the editing. Lots of sexual referencing, including a scene or two of "uncomfortable-ness". But like I said - a pretty interesting plot and some incredibly interesting characters!!

Dwight can act without his hat
Verified purchase
OK movie, watched to see Dwight without his tight jeans and hat. Not disappointed. Shocking change, because I haven't seen him in years. Didn't even know he could act, just wiggle a lot.

Don't waste your time on this one. The actors were in it for an easy paycheck.

This is literally un-watchable. Dwight, what in heck ...
Verified purchase
This is literally un-watchable. Dwight, what in heck were you thinking? With some very watchable actors in it, we figured we ouldn't go wrong--we are big western fans, after all. But this one was pulled out of the machine and dumped right into the trash bin. Shameful!
