Went to see Appaloosa




    Went to see Appaloosa (Ed Harris, 2008). Yipee. Yeehaw, I mean. Hurrah for the revival of the western. Thank you Ed. My dad must go see it (remember when we faced each other in the corridor, wearing our ponchos, playing at who would draw faster?). I had such a great time. The acting is to die for (Ed Harris and, even more so, Viggo Mortensen -- Jeremy Irons and Renée Zellweger are fine here but not as stupendous). This western is mostly about language and male friendship (the scene at the counter!). It's also about appropriating a genre to perfection. Very meta without being egghead, a million times better than The Assassination of Jesse James...
