    A fascinating study. What might surprise audiences, though, is how droll the picture is, how much of the violence is just slapstick, and how much deadpan humor is running throughout the film.

    A quasi-metaphysical revenge Western that remains as elusive as a distant mirage on a long, dusty trail.
  3. 30
    Directed and co-written by country singer Dwight Yoakam, this film just screams "vanity project."
  4. Oxymoronic musings of a vain country singer.
  5. 5
    A miserable western that is clearly headed downward toward the latter destination.
