Blunt Reviews Presents: True Grit (2010)


The Coen Brothers return to serious territory as they deliver one of the best modern western films since Clint Eastwood’s Unforgiven. Drawing inspiration from the original source material and the film from 1969 this is a solid western for modern audiences, but what’s best is the Coen Brothers ultimately leaving their mark and adding elements based on their own style. The cast is fantastic as one could expect, along with a phenomenal screenplay that accompanies such strong and memorable characters perfectly. The whole film has a dry, crisp feel as the period details are perfected and the genre mastered.
