Searchers, The

So today in Cinema Aesthetics we finished the John Ford classic western, The Searchers, starring John Wayne.

I thought it was excellent, absolutely brilliant. Shot amazing, great acting, and an awesome story.

My only complaints were that they got a German guy to play the Indian Chief ,Scar. For some reason that bothered me.

I love the way it bookends and the character development of Ethan. Westerns definitely have been taking a bad wrap lately.

Some goods ones not to miss are Unforgiven, the end of Open Range, Dances with Wolves, Hondo, and True Grit.
