Gore Verbinski United States, 2013

Zachary T.'s rating of the film The Lone Ranger

Underrated film that never found its audience (with genocide, scalping, cannibalism and prostitution in abundance, it wasn't the kiddies). In equal measures an acid, spaghetti and classical Hollywood western; one reverent of its influences. Strong non-white male characters, in Disney! While on the nose, a small child learning a romanticized hero story's dark side is an appropriately revisionist framing device.
