Though it appears an understated occasion of mere familial consequence, Ford and Wayne instill in this meticulously arranged introduction an astonishing degree of unspoken intrigue. Where has “the prodigal brother” been for the three years after the Civil War? Was he in California or not, and why is it a secret? And what is he doing with a bag full of fresh-minted Yankee dollars?

What will happen to Debbie? What will happen to Martin? I always ponder this when watching the ending of John Ford’s masterpiece, The Searchers. Most certainly I’ve long soaked in, reflected on and studied the famous final shot of John Wayne’s Ethan Edwards, standing outside that beautifully-framed doorway… he’ll roam lonely and damaged, never fitting in civilized society, never fitting in anywhere.

The greatest western ever made is also arguably the greatest American movie ever made. Before filming began, director John Ford described THE SEARCHERS as “a kind of psychological epic” and indeed his complex take on the settling of the West, with its head-on—and daringly ahead-of-the-time—examination of racism, finds an appropriately complex and tragic anti-hero in the character of the mysterious Ethan Edwards (John Wayne in his best and most nuanced performance).

  • dionysus67's rating of the film The Searchers

    The scope of landscape photography is among the major rewards in this landmark film, complemented by subtle shades of light and mood in the interiors. This grand epic is really a philosophy of history with elemental and primordial struggles giving rise to a fatalist, patriarchal and racist 'overman' played superbly by a physically imposing Wayne. Questionable politics, astonishing vision of existential strife.

  • Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Searchers

    The main character played by John Wayne is a bit of a racist. He calls the guy he works with a half-breed and a blanket head. If you're a woman taken by the Native Americans, then they probably want to shoot you, because you've been ruined. I think the rhyme is "Once you go native, we'll leave you vegetative."

  • Kamran's rating of the film The Searchers

    A brilliant use of light and shadow, interior and exterior, to channel the inner plight of its morally ambiguous lead characters. A psychological tour de force with great entertainment value and sensitively placed levity. It's only crutch is both its inherent and blatant racism. 90/100 - Amazing.

  • smndvdcl's rating of the film The Searchers

    Wayne is the alpha male racist sexist whose acclaim has always felt undeserved. However, I'm aware that Ford's Searchers inverts many of these typical Western tropes through directorial self-reflection. I engage much more with 'Shane' and 'High Noon', but can appreciate objectively the significance of this tale as genre-defining. Zizek's analysis converted me to a favourable revisionist 3 stars for this one.

  • ASHES IN THE HOURGLASS's rating of the film The Searchers

    Yes it's racist but I don't feel like this film is trying to hide this fact. If anything, it's a search for the origin of this hatred. It paints the image of a man who wants to change but simply can't let of go his past and change for the future. Even the ending which originally felt out of place to me seems to indicate that Martin's killing of Scar has, in a way, freed Ethan of his blinding rage against his daughter

  • jjk's rating of the film The Searchers

    constant awkward tonal shifts and painfully irritating characters. on top of that it is just boring and good for nothing but the landscapes (and that says a lot more about the beauty of monument valley than john ford's direction or winton hoch's photog)

  • Duncan Gray's rating of the film The Searchers

    This may be the big canonical classic I'm most conflicted about, especially since I've seen it described as the Great American Movie when I'm not even sure it's the Great John Ford Movie. But it's an auteurist classic—if you accept the stiff genre elements as a given, you're left with stunning cinematic lyricism and deep moral ambiguity. Some of it is traditions I wish America could shake. The rest is a masterpiece.

  • Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film The Searchers

    A film about a country with no path, a country living in a false idea of morality, a country of cowboys and indians, a country that lives its present through an idea of future without the pillars of the past. It might be light-hearted at moments, but the cynicism will be forever haunting.
