21 And Over
One of Nicholas Ray's best films, the garish, full-color Freudian Western is an amazing, weird movie that's not easy to get the first time around.
Rich, creative Western with much to say about politics and gender.
...manages to be both a serious critique of McCarthyism and a camp classic...
| Original Score: 6/10
A politically subversive Western, made during the McCarthy era, Nicholas Ray's cult movie offers two strong roles for women, Joan Crawford and Mercedes McCambridge, who may be latently lesbian.
| Original Score: A-
This 1954 Freudian Western is one of the all-time left-field wonders of the studio system, a film so subversive it's a wonder it ever got made.
A pop-culture madhouse dressed up in spurs and a cowboy hat
| Original Score: 4.5/5
Like the other great American films of the 50's, Johnny Guitar breaks through the mold.
| Original Score: 81/100
Bizarre, unforgettable Nicholas Ray western that ends in two women shootout!
| Original Score: 5/5
Quite possibly the weirdest Western ever made by a mainstream studio in the 1950s... I flat-out loved this movie.
| Original Score: 10/10
It's about time it was acclaimed for it what it really is: a genuine western film classic.
| Original Score: 4/4
Ray's film is not a romantic comedy, but a Western. Or is it?
| Original Score: 3/5
| Original Score: 4/5
For all its slightly tatty sets and off-the-mark decor, the film abounds in wonderful lines and acting that doesn't betray them.
