Fonda, touching as an actor, proves astonishing as a director, using a fluid, tactile style to conjure a life lived close to the elements and to sudden death.
A touching and absurd example of the hippie western.
Peter Fonda, Warren Oates and Verna Bloom build a complicated, touching, subtle triangle of longing and regret.
If Dennis Hopper dismantles revisionist-Western ennui in The Last Movie, Fonda embellishes it with poetic muddiness
Bloom is excellent as the abandoned wife who aserts her independence even when she's so vulnerable.
...perhaps the best of that cycle of realistic, existential Westerners produced in the late 1960s and early 1970s
Now that it has been restored, people are beginning to realize it got a bum rap back in the day.
A work dear to Fonda's heart, he has often spoken of his wish for this film to be his epitaph. It's one that would do any director proud.
[font=Century Gothic][color=sienna] "The Hired Hand" is a 1971 western directed by Peter Fonda(his first, and perhaps only noticeable effort) about a man who after several years wandering aimlessly with his pal through the West, decides to return to the wife he left several years before. The movie is deliberately paced and occasionally artsy. It is worthwhile because of the spotlight on the relationships between the characters and for one notable speech given by Verna Bloom who plays the abandoned wife. And Warren Oates has another very good performance in this movie.[/color][/font]
