To be honest, I'm not big fan of the rape revenge sub-genre, but this almost had a bit of The Crow to it. And we all know how I feel about The Crow. I'm also finding out that I actually dig this whole New French Extremity thing, though I didn't realize this was part of it before I watched it. Basically, a very bloody, surprisingly well-shot, deliberately over the top, enjoyable action horror film. The story isn't going to surprise…
Sooooo... I pretty much loved this. For some reason, it's hard for me to pinpoint what exactly made me love it, but the whole thing was just great. Aside from a wonderful cast and a beautiful setting, there is something almost whimsical about this story. It's a pretty unusual Western, a different spin on the genre with a simple story that has a very human warmth to it with a dash of romance. That's really the best I can do to explain why I loved it.
P.S. What's with the title though? I feel like the title really fails this movie.
