this was a total surprise...jacques is my kween!!! he really went in on this one...it's a film that still feels current today as it deals with the difficult question of bringing the privileged to judgement...very efficiently done with more color and depth in 66 minutes than many overlong western epics of then and now.

My entry into Toureur and I don't quite know what to make of it. Seemingly about 'nothing', there's little to suggest a past or future for these people, existing only in a fleeting present. Neither party can even summon more than momentary rage against one another and there is at times an unsettling coolness to their behavior. McCrea in particular wouldn't have been too out of place in a Bresson film.
