Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid ★★★★

meandering, like a series of vignettes rather than a coherent story. the whole film feels like a sequel - it never goes in depth on the previous relationship between Pat and Billy, as if we're just meant to already know it. interesting, though, and worth a rewatch later down the line. there's a lot of really insane dialogue in this and occasionally it hits a stroke of genius but for the most part it's just fucking weird (and kind of funny - wasn't really expecting it to have as much of a sense of humor as it did tbh). didn't care much for the music with vocals that kept popping up, felt a bit lame. for some reason the blood very clearly just being red paint was pleasing to me. this has the opposite ending to Shane. poor chickens :/
