  • Scout Tafoya's rating of the film The Depot of the Dead

    If they had stuck a little less closely to the events in the book and kept the shadow of the idea, this could have been a much more compelling story. It's still pretty goddamned great, but the plot meanders a bit too much for this to compete with The Wages of Fear, which I gather it means to. Still, a fascinating glimpse into another remote pocket of forgotten civilization, one filled with tension and death.
