    The only way I can think to describe it is what a Western directed by Wes Anderson might look like. Which, of course, sounds a bit oxymoronic, and is probably the root of the film's problems. At the same time, though, it's also what makes the film interesting. To be honest, I can't quite make up my mind about much regarding this film, including whether I even liked it or not. But it's something different and the run time is painless, so I would consider it worth a shot if you have even the slightest interest. 6 years ago

    Slow West is a lyrical western in the mold of Jarmusch's Dead Man, about a young Scotsman tracking the (unrequited) love of his life in the Old West, with the help of a bounty hunter who at first means to collect on her and her father's heads. That's the slow-burning plot, but what it's really about is the transformational power of love and death. It's the kid's love that drives the picture forward, and that transforms the bounty hunter's world view, though the influence goes both ways. Writer-director John Maclean has an inventive visual style that delights and shocks, even if his symbolism is sometimes a little heavy-handed. It's a style that is perfectly suited to the New Zealand locations standing in for the American West, a Middle-Earth littered with bodies acting as surreal backdrop for the story. It's gorgeous. A quiet film punctuated by flashes of violence. 3 years 5 months ago
