Dusters Down Under: Part 9: The Proposition

11 Mar

I’ve been somewhat reticent in placing The Proposition among my Dusters Down Under. It certainly qualifies as a Western, and it’s a well made film, but it’s excessive violent and brutal scenes is something that I would warn others about – and of which I believe has negatively impacted it’s popularity.

Be forewarned.

    Haven’t seen this one, but I’m more than a little allergic to excessive violence, so I’ll probably miss it.

      Yes … it won’t fit for a lot of people.
