Richard Farnsworth gives a marvellous performance in this little-seen western, also notable for the fine work of British cinematographer Frank Tidy. Documentary filmmaker Philip Borsos works hard and effectively at creating an authentic turn-of-the-century setting for his real-life anti-hero. The film's morality may not stand close scrutiny, and it's all paced too lackadaisically, but it's pleasantly rewarding nonetheless.
