  1. Superfrog's rating of the film The Homesman

    Actually a western I could watch without getting really annoyed for most of it. Could have done with a bit more subtlety, and with an actual story as the plot items do kind of work. Goes downhill when the party is diminished.

  2. mis marg's rating of the film The Homesman

    2nd time seeing this, since Picturehouse showing? haunting story.

  3. Dean Simons's rating of the film The Homesman

    Good but the twist in the story and the abrupt shift in narrative perspective didn’t gel for me.

  4. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film The Homesman

    A fine Western that feels both traditional and removed from the norm, thanks to the central relationship between Jones and Swank. Decent material is lifted up by a consistently great cast.

  5. Mike Jempson's rating of the film The Homesman

    Magnificent cinematography. Such a pity Tommy Lee made it more of a vehicle for him than for Hilary Swank. Not sure the' feminist message' got through, but it made a refreshing change for the 'happy whore' of the frontier 'story line so often reprised in westerns. Much though I enjoy Mery S, whe was only needed at the last minute to help sell the film which might otherwises have been overlooked, Nice one.

  6. Hayley&Colin's rating of the film The Homesman

    Promising first half, downhill all the way from Swank's death. Male director, four male writers. Recognises the plight of women, but then foregrounds the story of the man, thereby undermining any claims to a feminist western it might otherwise have made.

  7. Nicolas Pierce's rating of the film The Homesman

    This is honestly an astonishing, harrowing, strange and beautiful film. So amazingly alive and unpredictable. Completely and criminally overlooked by critics and audiences when it came out, but I'm confident it'll be reappraised and celebrated in years to come. Tommy Lee Jones needs to make more movies, but I guess if he did they might be less special than this one.

  8. Yvonx S's rating of the film The Homesman

    An outstaanding film in which the characters bring a forgotten, grittier, frontier to enjoyable, colourful life. Long live the Western, partner, if they make 'em like this!

  9. jurism's rating of the film The Homesman

    Film kept lingering in my head for few days. Mental disorders are mostly triggered by something. Abuse which is never revenged, then turned inwards together with historical context and worldview, and good acting.

  10. Sarah Pietsch's rating of the film The Homesman

    Excellent. Bleak but brilliant.

  11. jorjuntech's rating of the film The Homesman

    Penetrating examination of American Western pioneering. Life is unspeakably difficult and the landscapes beautiful and cruel. Refreshing to watch a film that gives the audience credit of intelligence. Now I understand the scale of the challenge and have appreciation for the human collateral damage in those early, wild western days. Concentrating on interior lives, more like French cinema than Hollywood. Great film.

  12. Laura Suffield's rating of the film The Homesman

    It's not actually that good. There's loads of sub- Cohen Brothers stuff and the tone veers between stark tragedy and sort of tragi-comedy which leaves one uninvolved. When H. Swank pegged out I simply wondered how the rest of the film would be filled up. Also having 3 actors playing mad people for an entire full length film is a bit dire. The landscape's great.

  13. CJG's rating of the film The Homesman

    Some beautiful shots and interesting subjects/subtext but I didn't engage. One explanation may be that I remain unconvinced about Hilary Swank.

  14. SiIencio's rating of the film The Homesman

    Conventional western springing from an original premise, this feminist allegation on the eve of the #metoo movement is still a shallow statement. The striking topic of mental illness is just confined to the boundries of an obscure wagon and the film is simply reduced to the uninspired exchanges between its two leading stars.

  15. Francisco's rating of the film The Homesman

    ***1/2 Great redemption study.

  16. Bruno's rating of the film The Homesman

    quando saiu, fui vê-lo três vezes ao cinema, este filme de loucura, e ou sou eu o louco ou é o mundo, que deixou este passar como se não fosse nada, um como os outros, isto tá tudo doido

  19. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film The Homesman

    Between "The Missing" and "The Lesson of Piano". A twilight western & a great role for Hilary SWANK. ==== Entre "Les Disparues" et "La Leçon de Piano". Un western crépusculaire & un grand rôle pour Hilary SWANK.

  20. Dave's rating of the film The Homesman

    A revelation. A harsh, yet engaging and moving story, shot in equally hard yet beautiful style by Tommy Lee Jones and cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto. Swank is outstanding and praise for the score is deserved. If it is a "western" then, outside The Assassination of Jesse James, it's arguably the best one that's been made since Unforgiven. One of the top films of the 2010s that I've seen. Highly recommended.

  22. cinegeek.de's rating of the film The Homesman

    Trotz des Titels ist The Homesman ein Film über Frauen. Frauen stehen im Zentrum der Action, trieben sie voran. Sie sind nicht die schönen passiven Begleiterinnen wie in anderen Western, sondern Heldinnen: Charakterstark und mutig, manchmal beides im selben Moment!(...) mehr auf cinegeek.de http://cinegeek.de/homesman-rating-78-dvd8497

  24. Renton47's rating of the film The Homesman

    The laws of nature are indeed mean but this is not the only way they might have been. 'The Homesman' is conflicting world views attempting to steer their way into the path of history. It is a shame then that the meanest, drunkest individuals are most successful at getting their way.
