Sam Williams’s review published on Letterboxd:
I put off watching this movie for a long time because it has such a dumb title. And honestly, Johnny Guitar the character is pretty lame. But Vienna, the real star of the film, is a bold, brassy, and extremely memorable character. Emma Small, the only other woman in the movie, is one of the most loathsome villains ever committed to film. The movie begins with a 30 minute verbal shootout and ends with an actual shootout. Watch it if you haven't.
