I know a lotta people think this was the last great Western . And a Brilliant send off of the genre. Listen this was a great Western in every aspect . This film is beautiful in every way. I felt dusty just watching it. It well worth the 2:45 run time. It may be the last of its kind . But I think they're have been some great ones after . In my opinion the greatest Western of all time was probably "The Outlaw Josey Whales". At least it's my Fav. I do believe that the western had a bit of a resurgence in the late 80's and Early 90's . With films like " Dances with Wovles" (don't hate on Costner it's a great movie. "Lonesome Dove" ( I know it's TV ). And then " Unforgiven" and of course the last great western made of that time frame "Tombstone". You can make the case for a few others . But not really. If there's anyone fighting to keep the western alive it would be Tarantino. QT was made some great work tWith "Djano" and "The Hateful Eight". Bringing Sergio Leone , Peckinpah type films
to a whole new generation with a QT twist.
They're both fantastic modern westerns . Proving the western isn't dead. There's still hope. And when it's done right there's no better film. Once upon a time is a perfect example of it. And the score is amazing . You can truly get lost.
