This is and always will be my FAVORITE film of all time. The cinematography is breathtaking. The location provided the perfect canvas for John Ford's greatest accomplishment. John Wayne gives a truly emotional and gripping performance. I realize a lot of people feel he was a poor actor, but I have always liked his films. You get a sense that he believed in his roles, and put his persona into his part. This movie is to me what a favorite song would be to some people. It is something I can drop into the DVD and escape to Monument Valley, Utah for a couple of hours. This may not be for everybody, but if you give it a chance, you won't be dissapointed.
