The Far Country

Posted by martinteller on June 27, 2009

Thoroughly mediocre Western, rather a letdown after Mann’s far more intriguing The Furies.  Very paint-by-numbers, nothing about this feels fresh or original.  Even the Technicolor is disappointing, highlighting the falseness of the sets more than anything else.  And fuck, I hate Walter Brennan.  If you really love Westerns, you might enjoy this since it follows such a standard template.  For me, it was little more than “watchable”.  Rating: 5
