I think it's a love it/hate it film since it's so extreme stylistically. I loved it :) great review.

To be honest with you, I never heard of the move before reading one of the reviews from my friends on RT... and I loved it, too!

I'm very interested in this though I don't really watch many westerns. I think Michelle Williams is a great actress! Great review as always!

I have played this thrice but never gone beyond the opening slow-paced scene, my elder brother is avid fan of this continuously forces me to watch it. Thanks for reminding me!

Patience is a virtue... :-) try watching it after tht scene!

Movies can be set in the west without being Westerns. I think RT called City Slickers a Western! It was a comedy set in the west, thats all. For a minute I thought this was going to be another Donner Party remake. Bend in the River was also a so called Western set in Oregon with Jimmy Stewart leading a wagon train and was highly thought of.

No, thats Bend of the River! (1952) and it got a 100% rating from the critics. I visited Mt. Hood where it was filmed.

having spent some time in that "oregon desert", around painted hills - I can probably get into the spirit of this - I'll check it out - thanks for the heads up. (I wonder, was it filmed in Oregon???)

Kelly Reichardt (who also shot the independent features Old Joy and Wendy and Lucy in Oregon) didn‚??t intend to shoot the historical drama in the Beaver State.
She had intended to shoot near Marfa, Texas, which has become a moviemaking location recently. ‚??It has hotels and restaurants and a Kinko‚??s ‚?? the things you need to make a movie,‚?? she explained. ‚??But the landscape isn‚??t nearly as dynamic as Southeastern Oregon.‚?? And so to Harney County she went. :-)

hmmm, I really enjoyed Wendy and Lucy, but didn't care much for Old Joy (thinking that it really didn't say or do much) - that vast area on the eastern side of Oregon is pretty dynamic indeed - just as the area around Lone Pine California (it's where a gazillion old westerns were shot in the 40's and 50's).

You know the area... the only deserts I am familiar are the Australian and Chinese... :-)

Incredibly boring. I usually enjoy slowly paced films but Meek's Cutoff seemed to be building towards absolutely nothing and when it was over I could barely remember any specific parts of the film.
