US, 1903: native american people colonialised; Geronimo in prison; "American Frontier Idyll" ultimatively gone; technology spreads; honor no longer has any value. That's not the world, Tom Horn wants to live in. The movie perfectly visualises his "mindset": the cold, the mud, the betrayal, the escape, the violence. In fact, Tom Horn commits suicide by not defending himself. Underrated classic. Great movie.
