Despite being burdened with grand pretensions, George Steven's Shane stands securely as one of the most intelligent westerns of its era.

The direction is deliberate, but the attention to detail is impressive, and the perfromances of Jean Arthur, Alan Ladd, and Brandon De Wilde are so good and restrained that they overcome the social-mythical types they're playing.

Cinema em Cena

A maravilhosa fotografia que explora as amplas locações e a força do elenco já seriam o bastante para criar um ótimo trabalho. Mas é a riqueza psicológica do misterioso protagonista e de sua relação com os Starrett que torna o filme inesquecível.

| Original Score: 5/5

Wyoming's scenic splendors against which the story is filmed are breathtaking. Sunlight, the shadow of rain storms and the eerie lights of night play a realistic part in making the picture a visual treat.

Here, as too often in his career, Stevens is aiming to have the last word on a genre: everything aims for 'classic' status, and everything falters in a mire of artsiness and obtrusive technique.

Stevens' classic Western, with its inflated reputation, now looks as if it were self-consciously intended as a landmark film right from the start.

If the Western is the quintessential American mythology, Shane is its great knight-samurai archetype: stern in battle, mild with women and children, siding with the wronged.

For Shane contains something more than beauty and the grandeur of the mountains and plains, drenched by the brilliant Western sunshine and the violent, torrential, black-browed rains...

While it's dated in some ways, the simple yet meaningful storyline, believable-looking sets and awesome natural setting make this a classic western.
