Good ol Western. As simple as they get and as neat as they were made. A weary gunfighter's plans for a peaceful life dont seem to work out as the settlers are in conflict with the ranchers. There is a huge amount of tension built up with a brilliant pay off. [8/10]
Shane: George Stevens' Classic Western Film based on the short story by Jack Shaefer .Alan Ladd put in a great performance but when you read the book you'll have someone different in mind ( Maybe William Holden or Robert Ryan) I've been reading the book to my students and they loved it.
Primer (2004) cost only 7 grand to make, but is one of the best suspense/sci-fi movies I've ever seen. It's also a mind-bending experience like "Inception" and "Memento" and could require additional viewings or a rush to the Internet to figure out everything that's going on here. But it's a wonderful, trippy experience. (It's also available, either in parts or as a whole, on YouTube.)
