Critics reviews

For such a project, it’s necessary that Ford should—to stay closer to home in literary references—contain multitudes. A great many of his facets will be on display at MoMI. Nowhere are the rewards and humiliations of duty so eloquently expressed as in Fort Apache (1948), while throughout these films the comfort offered by community is counterpoised with the terrible compromises that come with membership.
