    ★★★★★

    Really surprised this isn't getting more attention.

    It's the funniest Western since Blazing Saddles. And Joaquin is the meanest son of a bitch since Eastwood.

    It subverts the genre by showing four different facets of man. The fighter, the lover, the pessimist and the eternal optimist. Typically the west is defined by shallow personalities.

Linklater took such a huge chance when starting this 12 years ago, I can't even believe this got greenlit. It's one of the most ambitious movies I've ever seen and the fact that it's actually really great is so satisfying.
