Matthew Bowers’s review published on Letterboxd :
Fuck, this movie is so good. Sad and brutal and cynical; it's hip to call movies "contemporary westerns" for little to no reason, but this one certainly fits the bill. An amazing cast all give grungy, fiery performances, & the script and shooting both are tight and economical, even in the longer director's cut. James Mangold made a true classic here -- and dang, he was a lot more "woke" about the police than I think a lot of white dudes were in 1997.
