  1. Ethan's rating of the film Ride in the Whirlwind

    This is an interesting chase film of a western that offers up some great existentialism.

  2. Aardsy's rating of the film Ride in the Whirlwind

  3. huebsch's rating of the film Ride in the Whirlwind

    Schöner Western jenseits des gut/böse Schemas. Eine lakonisch erzählte Geschichte über das, was passieren kann, wenn man in einem Land ohne Gerichte aber mit Bürgerwehren dummerweise zur falschen Zeit mit den falschen Leuten abhängt. Keine kitschig überzogene Gewalt. Einfach trocken erzählt. Anmerkung: Es kommt sogar ein Afroamerikaner vor und Frauen, die nicht im Bordell arbeiten. Aber vor allem einsame Männer...

  4. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Ride in the Whirlwind

    Pretty weak stuff. Something just felt… off. Not like unsettling or anything purposeful, but just kind of incompetent. Something in the dialogue, something in the cutting is just awkward.

  5. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Ride in the Whirlwind

    I remember reading that for Once Upon a Time in the West, Sergio Leone and co. wanted to make a western rooted in the reality of the old west—but of course, they just swapped one myth for another. Hellman succeeds in a way they didn't: his west is properly barren, a place of separation and moral indifference. The film is too early a draft for masterpiece status. But I'd love to see someone continue in this direction.

  6. gaffordKINO's rating of the film Ride in the Whirlwind

    Justice and morality are like the dust kicked up by Wes' horse at the end of Ride in the Whirlwind. All events and set pieces speak to a certain futility in the lives of our main and side characters, whose daily lives merely occupy the body and mind as we hurdle towards the inevitable.

  7. Shayan Bazri's rating of the film Ride in the Whirlwind

    tough & wildness of western world.A nice B-Western.

  8. n/a's rating of the film Ride in the Whirlwind

    A western as barren as the west itself, stripped of all but the basics: cowboys, posses, shootouts, landscapes; where the bare necessity and breathtaking urgency of Hellman’s shooting style matches the chaotic, life-and-death world created within the confines of the film; here, riding off into the sunset at the end is barely a glimmer amidst the bleakness.

  9. Jason's rating of the film Ride in the Whirlwind

    Although it is less showy about it, there may be no film in which God is more absent outside of Bergman's famous trilogy.

  10. Ahmet UJeschk's rating of the film Ride in the Whirlwind

    A good western to watch, but can not be compared with Leone's spaghettis, especially in cinematography and music.

  11. Ender UÇUM's rating of the film Ride in the Whirlwind

    Güzel ve farklı bir western. Nicholson aynı zamanda senaryonun da sahibi...

  12. sobczynski's rating of the film Ride in the Whirlwind

  13. Dave's rating of the film Ride in the Whirlwind

    Very well done western, with a wonderful B-western feel ala Boetticher.

  14. lukewarneke's rating of the film Ride in the Whirlwind

    Monte seems to get barely any love, but this is goddamn great.

  15. Konrad Szlendak's rating of the film Ride in the Whirlwind
