  1. Cimino!'s rating of the film Day of the Outlaw

    Really, one of the greatest westerns ever imo

  2. matelot's rating of the film Day of the Outlaw

  3. Hyperion_333's rating of the film Day of the Outlaw

    On the barren escarpment of world-history, civilisation is but a wind-wracked saloon yearning to give in.

  4. εξώτερο Διάστημα's rating of the film Day of the Outlaw

    The real "Fifty Shades of Grey" film: the trenchant chessboard separation btw good & evil is here superseded by progressive grisaille of worseness. Who fumbles to the neutral end of spectrum does so in inverse proportion with their capacity to intervene. Bleak & tightrope tense, DotO shuns nihilism - the ethos of an active life goal-impregnates a useful death due less to communital fever than unexpected philadelphia.

  5. Christopher McQuain's rating of the film Day of the Outlaw

  6. JonMB's rating of the film Day of the Outlaw

    This film is a gem that most people don't know about. Burl Ives (the Big Country) with yet another outstanding performance. Robert Ryan is also very good with some strong supporting acting from Tina Louise. I can't imagine that movies that depict this kind of sexually oriented violence were very popular at the time this was made but De Toth (director) got away with it. Fine film.

  7. nessmj's rating of the film Day of the Outlaw

    Really a wonderful western. Incredible shots that create and maintain moments of tension throughout. Huge overarching sensation of suffocating sense of separation. Quite the view of humanity as it pertains to nature looming in on it brought together with even the empty walls seeming to loom in on the cast. Had some small issues with some of the cast and moments that seemed a tad rushed. Great otherwise.

  8. Gustavo Razera's rating of the film Day of the Outlaw

    Tension-filled, minimalistic 'northern' filled with rugged characters whose uncertain sense of morality make the outcome unpredictable.

  9. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film Day of the Outlaw

    ★★★★ wild cold west.

  10. GENO#40's rating of the film Day of the Outlaw

    Burl Ives plays a well-written character and performs it wonderfully. The film has some un-usual for the time long takes, and some awesome long pans, particularly the Dance scene which Bertrand Tavernier has pointed out before (see "Fragments" by de Toth, preface). I really enjoyed the last 12 minutes-briliant b&W cinematography in the snow-with a killer soundtrack!My appreciation of de Toth just keeps growing.

  11. Michael Voegtlin's rating of the film Day of the Outlaw

    Exemplary for a B movie director's ability to marry economic storytelling with visual poetry to the utmost efficiency. Even the obvious difference in the lighting quality between interior staging and photography in the open adds to its surreal stylization. All in all a little miracle in mise-en-scène.

  12. Neither/Nor's rating of the film Day of the Outlaw

    Harsh inversion of High Noon. Ascends into a blinding wilderness with its gunslinger twilight tropes before dissolving and pulling back to an unsatisfying conclusion, but not before issuing the cry of the individual against history in a way that echoes in Peckinpah and resonates in the hallucinatory angst of Corbucci's Il Grande Silenzio. The life of a genre must pass and when it passes the end must take place.

  13. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Day of the Outlaw

    In my opinion, the less renowned of the revolutionary westerns, a masterpiece that foretells the spaghetti wave and Clint Eastwood's crepuscular work. This is a Greek tragedy in black & white and in the snow, regulated by by Alexandre Courage's great musical score. Indispensable.
