It's a measure of the four exceptional central performances (from Reilly, Phoenix, Gyllenhaal and Ahmed) that the film remains so engaging in spite of its narrative digressions and moments of very bleak violence.
A more thoughtful Western than we're used to - still looking dusty and beautiful, but with fewer cliches and not much real resolution, which won't be to everyone's taste - but I enjoyed my time with it.
Engrossing as the narrative is, the greatest pleasures of this terrific film lie in the contrasting personalities of the various protagonists, and in the way a quartet of wonderful actors bring them to life.
