Critic Reviews for Western

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4)

  • A layered, atmospheric chronicle of living traditions like bullfights and rodeos, mariachi bands and Texas two-steps.

  • The film, a hard jewel of beauty and reportage, demands and rewards [a] second viewing.

  • With a more straightforward through-line of story, though it remains in the observational and unobtrusive mode of the prior films, the Ross brothers have essentially embedded themselves in a place to seek out its truth.

  • A low-key but sharply observed work that benefits from real local flavor and a gift for lyric image making.

  • Instead of concentrating on the gangs, whose presence looms larger since the Ross Brothers wisely leave them so undefined, the focus intensifies on the uneasy relationship that still exists amongst the border towns.

  • Western is languidly paced, at times to the point of inertia, but its shots of flat-lined Southern landscapes stretching on past the horizon are painterly enough to warrant your patience.
