Kritikeranmeldelser

The plot, a loose reworking of Thomas Hardy’s The Mayor Of Casterbridge, is, in theory, a mostly traditional Western story of hardened men fighting over real estate. But one of the characters, played with extraordinarily commanding understatement by Peter Mullan, has a heartbreaking secret that explodes the genre’s propensity for loneliness.

The Claim in anamorphic widescreen tends toward a single focal point, and a swirl of surrounding activity—even when the camera circles a man screaming in despair against a desolate landscape, he’s centered in the frame, a still point in a turning world. Returning to the film, I found it more legible, visually and narratively, than I remembered.
