    Death is not the great equalizer. It is a centrifuge, separating those who stare willingly into its snake-eyes from those who dare not look, let alone live, towards it. That unflinching few can look death in the eye as easily we cowards peer at our own reflection, for them it is the same. They are death.

    They may masquerade under different guises. English Bob is the jingoistic gentleman who kills only those beneath his sights. Little Bill can rationalize murder…

    My favorite western, though there are many classics I've yet to see.

    The death of the Western genre is one of the most disheartening developments to happen to Hollywood filmmaking in the past twenty years. But if any film was going to represent the end of an era, what better choice than UNFORGIVEN? Sure, we've gotten some great representations of the genre since then, some of which I may enjoy more than Clint Eastwood's magnum opus, but I don't think a film has more succinctly depicted the end of an era as…

    Any man who doesn't give this classic revisionist western five stars, Will Munny will come kill him, and he'll kill his wife and all his friends.

    Little Bill Daggett é um homem honrado: um agente da lei que fez fama no Velho Oeste por prender malfeitores e estabelecer, nas cidades em que ostentou o escudo de xerife, um sistema de prevenção absoluta de conflitos. Nenhum bandido tem chance na cidade de Little Bill. Sequer tem a chance de considerar cometer um delito, já que, esperto, o xerife proíbe de antemão que se empunhe armas nas dependências da vila. Admirado e temido, Bill tem uma cena poderosa…

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Unforgiven is an indisputable masterpiece. It's a film that so poetically discusses and analyzes violence that it virtually makes all other westerns irrelevant. No western needed to be made after this movie, as I don't think there is anything left to say in the genre. However, it is only because of all the westerns before it that it manages to be so powerful.

    In that sense, it's a postmodern film although it has a normal structure, provided by the brilliant…

    I remember leaving the theater the first time I saw this film and not speaking for a while to the friend I saw it with. I feel the same way now. It's a movie that sits with you for a time before your emotions can be vocalized, or written about at least.

    William Munny is a great character. At the beginning he is struggling to be the man his wife wished him to be, but he is having a determined…

    That's right. I've killed women and children. I've killed just about everything that walks or crawled at one time or another. And I'm here to kill you, Little Bill, for what you did to Ned.

    Clint Eastwood is clearly against violence. That's why I'm cutting some slack to American Sniper, because I don't think the director of Million Dollar Baby, Mystic River, Gran Torino and especially this film, can make a jingoistic movie. So I viewed the film in a different way. I don't think it glorifies Kyle. Yet, I still think it is a garbage film not worthy of any of its accolades (except for Bradley Cooper's).

    Back to this film, this is the…

    "Deserve's got nothin' to do with it."

    Well I love western movies and Clint Eastwood, so naturally I love this movie, too. With that being said it's more realistic and way less romantic than "old" westerns. Great cast (Clint Eastwood, Gene Hackman, Morgan Freeman), badass lines (and some funny too), superb cinematography (beautiful landscapes) should be enough for those who love westerns, even just a little bit.
