Re: Movies Seen In 2013


25. The Wild Bunch (A)

If the NRA was looking for movies to cite in its mad quest to divert people's attention from actual guns, this would probably be a good one.

A very well-done film (I especially like how they have Robert Ryan chasing the gang the entire movie, only for them to be all dead when he gets there, which I imagine must have floored audiences at the time, especially), which pushes the limit for how much you can ask the audience to identify with people despite them being objectively horrible people (particularly all the emphasis put on the guys rescuing Angel, who murders a woman in cold blood at one point). There's some quite spectacular practical stunts.
