Anthony Mann United States, 1958

Daniel S.'s rating of the film Man of the West

Crepuscular movie which foreshadows the European spaghetti westerns. Cooper, London, O'Connell and Cobb all feel that they don't longer belong to their time. They have become caricatures: the old cowboy with a past, the cheating card player, the senile outlaw and the singer with a heart. They're already part of history. Masterpiece.
