Ride in the Whirlwind

Instrueret af Monte Hellman
USA, 1966
Western

Synopsis

Three cowhands, between jobs, have the bad dumb luck to pitch night camp in the same valley as a cabin full of guys who just robbed a stagecoach and killed the guard. Come morning, a posse arrives, forms up along the ridge, and takes for granted that everyone down below is guilty.

Ride in the Whirlwind Instrueret af Monte Hellman
The western in film was a laboratory for advances in film editing. Porter’s The Great Train Robbery contains some of cinema’s first uses of parallel editing. Hellman, an editor himself, seems to consciously create a film which works against this tradition, instead of cutting to action, he allows us to to see what happens in between the bursts of gunfire and wild chases. Within the film’s first five minutes this alternative vision of the west becomes clear.

Their long, tense interactions and existential situations refine the stripped-down westerns that Budd Boetticher made in the late 1950s. In their despair of meaning and noncomic absurdity, they seem a cornfed equivalent to the modernist cinema of Michelangelo Antonioni and Ingmar Bergman. (Akira Kurosawa is an influence as well.) You might even term them neorealist westerns.

Ride in the Whirlwind is unquestionably a great movie, with its direct performances, gorgeous imagery, literate, densely jargoned dialogue, and inventively bifurcated duel-siege structure.
