  1. noice's rating of the film Western Union

  2. Ethan's rating of the film Western Union

    This is a gripping Western of Shakespearean proportions. Randolph Scott gives a solid performance as a man conflicted with his surroundings and his internal struggle. The cinematography here is astounding and Lang paints a passionate and sometimes comic vision of the American frontier and the struggles of putting up a telegraph line.

  3. João Rocha's rating of the film Western Union

    Not a western exciting like the Jonh Ford's, but an amazing cinematographic one

  4. FISCHER's rating of the film Western Union

    Un épisode de la fameuse conquête de l'Ouest qui ne fut pas seulement physique mais aussi technique avec la pose du premier télégraphe d'Est en Ouest aux Etats-Unis. Un véritable souffle épique !

  5. Jason's rating of the film Western Union

    If you don't love this movie, presumably you don't give a shit about mise en scène. I mean: wow! What colour! What geometry! Behold the human ant colony! This extremely broad Technicolor Zane Grey adaptation gives me more pleasure the e'er has the company of any human person or persons. It is kind of de facto racist, natch. But some Indian chiefs are played by Indian chiefs, and the Sioux are mightily sympathetic.

  6. Nachtreich's rating of the film Western Union

    Ma che cazzo ti dai al western, infame.

  7. Les films du miroir magique's rating of the film Western Union

    I like the old trapper who believes that he will be able to send his furs to Boston by the telegraph wire : he is the inventor of the Internet of the things.

  8. Adam Suraf's rating of the film Western Union

    The second of Lang's three American Westerns, about the connecting of telegraph wires to the west, and the nominal complications that arise. Not as sprawling as John Ford's similar themed "The Iron Horse", but Fritz Lang was still enough of a big name at the time to warrant some pretty spectacular outdoor location photography.

  9. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Western Union

    So so western without the peculiar touch of the German Master. For completists only.
