10.12.2014 Man of the West

Screen Shot 2014-10-27 at 10.14.03 AM

One of the best films I’ve ever seen about the father son relationship. This and Night of the Hunter put together sum up maybe the most emotionally accurate portrayal for me personally. The characters and situations are familiar, but are always twisted just the right way to feel real instead of tired. Lee Cobb especially goes all out, playing a theatrical character, but again finding the poetic truth if maybe not the realism.
