Slow West ★★★★

It is a shame Michael Fassbender lives today instead of a time in the past, because he has a body and a presence that is made for a time when Westerns were in vogue instead of revisionists curiosities. And he is great here. The film itself, is an exercise, a throwback, but with a wrinkle on the idea of a man conquering the west to win a woman's heart. But here, her heart was never for sale, it was never his to take, and that's a revision I can get behind.
