    Todo es de altura en ella y a la vez transmite apatía durante demasiado rato. La chica protagonista va a ser enorme, Jeff Bridges siempre lo es y Matt Damon... bueno, cambiemos de tema.

    It's amazing to think the Coen Bros made this movie between Llewyn Davis and A Serious Man, two movies that can firmly be described as pictures only the Coens could pull off. And yet between those two decidedly Coen movies is this straight-up western, from 2000-fucking-ten of all years, and were you to see this blindly, the brothers' names popping up in the credits might come as a bit of a shock. Granted, you might be able to identify it…

    My original review of this film is published at Looking Closer.

    Excerpt:

    The Coen Brothers’ first Western gives us three important stories to consider.

    The first is the story of what happens when a young justice seeker, Mattie Ross, hires the ruthless manhunter Rooster Cogburn to track down the vigilante who shot and killed her father. It’s a compelling story. Can 14-year-old Mattie make a journey into the violent, lawless wilderness and achieve justice without losing her soul, her innocence,…

    This movie bonded me and my son Luke to the Coen Brothers and their gift of movie making. We first saw it in Prince George together in the theater. This date was when I watched it for the second time on Blu-Ray.

    The 2010 remake of True Grit is probably the most elegantly shot western I have ever seen. The performances are all unanimously exceptional. The soundtrack is superb as well. What more could you ask for?

    I was blown away by Haliee Stienfield in this film, she deserved the Oscar that year.

    Jeff Bridges basically plays Lebowski again, but this time in the west. Probably the Coen Brothers' only non-original movie. The story is pretty solid, but like most westerns, it has many slow moving parts. Felt a lot of scenes could have been cut out to make it tighter and more enjoyable. A respectable remake but not on my favorites list from the Coens.

    Hailee Steinfeld. Lovely, lovely debut.

    A very well constructed film and I am sure an amazing remake even though I have not seen the original film nor have I read the novel. The rest of the cast does an amazing job as well. It was everything I expected of a Coen brothers' film: all cinematic qualities on point with the finesse of seasoned pros!
