Rancho Notorious ★★★★½

Proudly artificial, complete destructive pushing Lang's fatalism to extremes. It is a series of mirrors, violent impulses and movie tall tales allowed to cancel each other out. All three leads are remarkable pretty much because they seen so stylized removed of their western setting. But this is Lang's movie, collapsing so many differemt tones and pushing his self aware artífice in ways that both comment in the action and make it even more punishing and he finds often fascinating ways of spinning Dietrich myth.
