Critic Reviews for Last Hunt
It does seem to take Mr. Granger an awfully long time to get around to freezing out Mr. Taylor. That's the way sermons sometimes go.
Russell Harlan's admirably low-key cinematography complements writer/director Brooks' down-beat tone.
The script's in-depth look into the motivating forces behind the characters is complemented by striking performances. Well-paced direction helps to keep the movie from lapsing into even a moment of dullness.
Not for the squeamish, as the killing of the buffalo is real--done by sharpshooters hired by the government to thin out the herd.
