    Stuart Gordon is a masterclass in making a genuinely gruesome horror film that still has a potent emotional center.

    Arguably a better tribute to Westerns than the similarly named Django, this movie's only downfall is the touch of Johnny Depp self-indulgence that, while unnecessary and occasionally worthy of an eye-roll, is not such a detriment as to mar this otherwise amazing film. Setting aside the numerous lovingly placed references to other Westerns (my personal favorite being the guitar riff from Once Upon a Time in the West), the movie is splendidly animated, voices acted with passion, characters distinctive and…
