As in Purple Plain director Parrish makes a film about a man's long voyage home as though he wandered through an alternately friendly and menacing dream landscape to get there. Both are quite peculiar examples their respective genres (Plain - war, Country - western), and both have a hypnotic pull - how I'd love to see them on the big screen!
A very strange western. Neither Texas neither Mexico is the wonderful country of the movie title. Robert Mitchum got a glimpse of this country while staying a few days at the Santos (The Saints)'s ranch but that's all. Now, imagine a bunch of Apaches hunted by black US soldiers in the Mexican sierra. You can't ? Robert Parrish can and shot this mythical scene. A movie to be rediscovered. Now.
