  • João Eça's rating of the film Saddle the Wind

    Unusual movie, mixing the "troubled teenager picture" with the western genre, while exploring the very american theme of the thin line between violence and peace, chaos and order, savagery and civilization. There are some good scenes indeed, but I felt that Cassavettes' acting was just to modern for the picture. And he really steals the show. Worth a viewing, though I've seen this movie before and better done.

  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film Saddle the Wind

    John Sturges just re-shot a few scenes in the studio because MGM was afraid that Robert Taylor was looking too old under the Colorado sun. A superb western, very modern, mostly thanks to the performance of John Cassavetes. Robert Parrish is definitely a director to rediscover. The ten first minutes, with only a supporting cast, sets the tone of the whole movie. Highly recommended.
