Hard to believe this guy is also Don Draper.
Old Henry starts as one of those modern westerns that only really use the west as a backdrop—looking at you, The Power of the Dog—but quickly evolves into a quintessential American story of law and lawlessness, identity, redemption, and freedom.
Overall a great movie with a good mystery slightly ruined by one-too-many coincidences, an epic action scene reminiscent of John Wick, and great performances by the whole cast, but especially from Tim Blake Nelson and Gavin Lewis. TBN employs that…
Ah man. It’s for movies like this that we need quarter stars.
The mood, ambience, and some of the fucked up revelations are all terrific and full of classic Park Chan-wook flavor. On the other hand, the script can be childishly edgy and disappointing in its predictability. Once you understand that there isn’t much more to the movie than what it looks like, it’s easy to lose interest.
I’m glad I watched this, but besides the piano and the shower scene, I won’t be thinking back on this movie much.
What you'd get if Yukio Mishima dropped acid and directed a body horror gonzo movie.
I did not enjoy it, but I have to admit it succeeds in depicting the raw energy of movement and violence way, way better than anything else out there. Quite unlike anything else I've watched in other ways as well, both good and bad, but the bad are definitely more vivid.
