i was not expecting to enjoy this film as much as i did !! it is truly shakespearean !! in terms of how it plays so deftly w the expectations of what a romcom is & how one should go, how it's almost a tragedy in so many ways & yet ! it is not
should have given buster scruggs a resonator imo.
great lil homage to calamity jane in the first vignette, but the influence ends there - this film fails the bechdel test spectacularly. it’s no chicken run !
do i feel wary about the way they depicted the wild west & violent american colonialism & frontierism? yes. would i need to read more about it before forming a solid opinion? also yes
would i risk everything for brendan gleeson’s rendition of the unfortunate rake??? absolutely
