Once you start watching, it robs you of your time at gunpoint, then knocks your teeth out and kicks you downstairs, drops on top of you and jabs a fountain pen in your eye. The only movie I can think of that captures the sheer joy of being a violent sociopathic scumbag. Riveting.
Probably the most intelligent entertaining movie ever made. Great acting, great cinematography, great storytelling, and a look into a man’s soul through big, sweeping action. You can almost turn it off during some of the long traveling-through-the-desert sequences… but not quite. And then you’re stuck.
There’s just too much joy to turn it off. It’s like taking an anti-depressant. True hearts triumphing over the movie business — made by the movie business when the movie business actually was the movie business.
