Strikingly original, gorgeous cinematography, authentic costume design, excellent performances. This is one of those movies that will become better known and appreciated as time goes by. Apparently not many people knew what to make of it in 99.

Absolutely wonderful film. The acting is great and the story is awesome. The more I watch this film the more I love it. Now if only they would release it on Bluray already

I actually found myself liking and enjoying this darkly tongue-in-cheek cannibal western. The actors had a lot to do with that; They really made the effort to sell the premise. Gory, but also wickedly amusing. Not the best movie ever, butI actually found myself liking and enjoying this darkly tongue-in-cheek cannibal western.

What they thought was over the top was actually right on the spot. A beautiful and harsh tale of America and it's equal parts monstrous greed and nobility. Great cast and amazing score. I can't make it through the movie without wanting to eat a steak though. Expand

This is a movie you can watch over, and over, and over again. Even with run-on sentences! It captures the Sierra's so well and the acting as well as the cast are spot on.

Like other comments suggested the replay value is high as a kite and the quote worthiness will leave you (and those weirdos you watch it with) making inside comments for the rest of your lives. This director has never landed anything like it before or since making it one of those amazing one hit wonders that manages to feature an almost all star cast (though many before they would be considered "stars").

Details are important so listen closely and pay attention to every minor detail as it all has meaning and either ties into a joke or a horrific detail... if you miss it, don't sweat, you'll catch it on your second or third watch.

Compelling historical horror where intense characters develop the plot effectively against carefully chosen harsh backdrops. A few grisly moments, though no leap-out-your-seat surprises.
