Critic Reviews for Les Cowboys
It takes a lot of confidence for a director to pay homage to John Ford's "The Searchers" (1956), and in the case of Thomas Bidegain's "Les Cowboys" it is not altogether unwarranted.
Bidegain and cinematographer Arnaud Potier speak multitudes with wide-angle, slow-panning shots that immerse us in a post-9/11 quagmire that's never less than utterly personal.
Remaking a classic John Ford western might sound like a good idea, but there's just one problem: You're not John Ford.
It proceeds with a hushed tone that wants to be taken for observant modesty, but eventually reveals itself as suffocating self-importance.
