The Searchers (John Ford, 1956)
John Ford and John Wayne spent their entire careers filming westerns. “Seekers” stand as the culmination of their joint work. The story of the veteran of the American Civil War, Ethan Edwards, who is in search of his cousin kidnapped by the Comanche Indian tribe, served as an inspiration for many famous directors, the so-called the new Hollywood of the 1970s and 1980s.
The Wild Bunch (Sam Peckinpah, 1969)
This is Sam Peckinpah’s controversial western from 1969. What makes this film also different from the classic western is the rather explicit violence, especially for that time, and especially for this genre. The Wild Horde is known for its intricate action sequences that combine slow-motion and normal shots from several angles, a revolutionary technique that will become standard in later films.
Unforgiven (Clint Eastwood, 1992)
The plot of this western follows a retired revolver man who accepts another job for money. Clint Eastwood, Gene Hackman, Morgan Freeman, Richard Harris, Jaimz Woolwett, Saul Rubinek, and Frances Fisher starred in this anti-western, which exposes the violence and the myth of the Old West. You have to watch this movie!
