Slow West … revisited

30 Jul

slow west posters Wasn’t really sure what to expect from this movie. I just hoped it was good. It did keep my interest up. But it’s definitely not a conventional ‘old style’ Western. At times it almost seems like a stream of disjointed surrealistic vignettes – some violent – some humorous. I wasn’t surprised by the ending. One thing I did notice though, was an unusual weapon that used in one scene. A particular rifle that I recognized right away – from one of My Favorite Westerns. It’s used by a bounty hunter in one of the concluding scenes: Below: Do you recognize it?

Well … lookie here.

You may not recall it’s Make, but if you’re a Western fan you may well recall where you saw it before.
