Jared Moshe, the writer and director of The Ballad of Lefty Brown, is a fan of classic Westerns and he's made a movie that should please fellow aficionados.
This is a satisfying indie western, a dark and brooding film made with both a modern touch and real love for the genre.
Mr. Pullman, his good looks obscured by chiaroscuro shadows and mutton chops, keeps you tethered to Lefty even when the rambling turns to drift. Mr. Mosh knows his genre.
Audience Reviews for The Ballad of Lefty Brown
Dec 28, 2017There was a time in the history of Western storytelling in the U.S. of A. wherein every good guy worth his salt had more than simply a trusty horse and a trusty gun. There was a trusty sidekick. Dim, befuddled, good for a laff (and probably a drink too), always a step behind the action but loyal to a fault. This story begins with the death of the good guy and wonders: "what happens to the sidekick now?" It's an interesting proposition. This story unfortunately then ventures into familiar territory, but the leads commit fully to the opening gambit. Particularly good is Kathy Baker, seen around the film industry for years and always underutilized. She shines like a diamond in this. And Bill Pullman gives the performance of a lifetime as the sidekick, finding his way on his own for the first time ever. I wish the story had as much salt as the characterizations. Fans of the Western genre put a lookout on for this under the radar gem.Kevin M. W Super Reviewer
