Walter Hill Amerika Serikat, 1995

Ghostman's rating of the film Wild Bill

Wild Bill is an engaging but flawed Western by Walter Hill. It depicts the story of the titular Wild Bill Hickok & it takes on a elegy-like approach to the proceedings. It's shot spectacularly for a Western & utilizes what appears to be video for flashbacks & dream sequences in a novel touch by Hill. For a filmmaker famous for his economical writing, Hill's movie is strangely shapeless & has little energy. [cont.]
