Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It's all of 84 minutes. But when it's done, you know you've seen something.
Fresh: Maclean's film is a wonderfully dreamy, if meandering, take on the western. Like all movies that use their fantastic surroundings, Slow West is best seen on a big screen.
Fresh: There's more to the story than meets the bull's eye in Slow West, a brainy and genre-defying western by newcomer John Maclean.
Fresh: Slow West crescendos into a bravura shootout between all the involved parties, and it's as gorgeous, nihilistic, and brutally sad as the rest of the film.
Just when you think the Western genre has been explored more than required a first time filmmaker creates this. This film is totally unique, funny, intense and completely entertaining. As per usual, Michael Fassbender and Ben Mendelsohn both give exceptional performances.
brutal western. great acting. some really great shots. music on point. a certain bleak feeling of how every day life during the colonization and devastation of the west probably was. i have only seen life captured that way in a few movies of this genre. bummed its over. will watch again.
A different kind of western
