Critic Reviews for The Hired Hand
A touching and absurd example of the hippie western.
This groundbreaking 1971 western nimbly upsets most of our expectations about cowboy movies.
Audience Reviews for The Hired Hand
Am I the only one that doesn't feel that the pretty images elevate this poor and empty drama a good movie.
Great film. Perfect cinematography, especially for the era. One of the top films of the early 1970's and possibly the most accurate/believable westerns ever made.
A very strong western, and exactly the way a western should look and feel like. So many of the last year's version have 0 understanding of pace, mood and theme and just rush through with neck-breaking speed. That's not how you film a western. The Hired Hand, however, is. Yes, the story is not very extensive, but has sufficient depth to it to make for a pretty good plot. Really enjoyed it.
