Bone Tomahawk ★★★½

As brutish and nasty as the Old West no doubt was, and maybe the most violent film to feature so many major movie stars. Probably a good half hour too long, though I actually preferred the slow, rambling, dialogue-heavy passages of the first two-thirds to the how-more-brutal-can-we-get finale. But this is nonetheless an impressive debut from writer-director-composer S. Craig Zahler, who went out on a mighty long limb with this one.
