Blunt Reviews Presents: Slow West (2015)

slow west

While the Western genre is difficult to get right, this feature debut from writer/ director John Maclean is a terrific piece of work that fits perfectly into the genre. It may be a short film with a relatively simple narrative structure, but there’s a lot of depth carried in the screenplay. On one hand the film explores death and murder, but on the other hand it examines the parameters and universality of love, constructing a well-rounded and thought provoking experience. The ensemble cast is consistently brilliant, which combined with superb cinematography makes this an entertaining and interesting piece of cinema.
