    okay that one shot of her hand in the river is a brick reference you will NOT change my mind. perhaps this is more interesting viewed through a kind of noirish lens? but i wasn’t obsessed with it overall. 
    nice to see a movie in a theatre !

    3 Godfathers


    Day 2 of Christmas watching takes us to a Western that happens at Christmas, if not a Christmas Western. A classic offering from Ford especially in terms of music, this one has some really funny moments, and the ghost sequence is really very funny, even if it’s not intended to be.
