Greg S.'s rating of the film Exiled

The elegance in which the shootouts unfold have almost a ritualistic feel like the acts of violence are a right of passage. Another reading might be the shootouts function in almost a brechtian fashion and disciplining the audience's involvement with the action sequences gives more weight to the surprisingly serene scenes in between. In either case a pretty stunning marriage of form and content. Must see.
