Martin Ritt's movie set a new trend in American Westerns in its criticism of the White men and in suggesting that the Native Americans are morally superior.

One of Ritt's best films, with fine performances all round, impressive Death Valley locations, and superlative camerawork from James Wong Howe.

For this is a first-rate cooking of a western recipe-not a great Western film nor a creation, but an excellent putting of heat to a fine selected blend.

The performances are uniformly excellent...It's intelligent and has a certain grace as well.

Como em todo filme inspirado em obra de Elmore Leonard, Hombre conta com diálogos afiados - que acabam se tornando ainda mais marcantes graças à brilhante atuação de Paul Newman.
| Original Score: 5/5

Those looking for an intelligent and bittersweet western should search out Hombre, a somewhat overlooked (yet still fondly remembered) mini-classic of the genre.

For as much as Hombre is a film of its time, it endures as an example of how deeper examinations of the rifts that divide individuals and nations are forever contemporary.
