Walter Hill: From Best to Worst

"Legendary" action director Walter Hill has been something of an obsession of mine this year, I've managed to see all twenty of his films in 2013. This number is not counting the mini-series Broken Trail but is factoring in the mess of a "Thomas Lee" film that was Supernova.

The man who is credited with inventing the buddy cop sub-genre once said of his own work that every movie he ever made was a Western, even when it's not evident on the surface, that he sets his films in "a stripped down moral universe that is, whatever the dramatic problems are, beyond the normal avenues of social control…of the problem, and I like to do that even within contemporary stories."
