    ★★★★★

    Hellman's The Shooting for the classical hollywood period.

    A tight, violent and psychological western stripped from an elaborate plot and ambiences, just men on a journey of hate and massacre.

    ★★★★★

    Vivid red blood, kleptomania, constant and generalized sexual desire, harpoon violence, seedy political machinations... all of that while the production code was still in vogue and shot in colourful technicolor on sets drenched in classical hollywood studio artificiality.

    Pure movie magic.

    ★★

    Uma completa abominação cinematográfica, que em seu desespero por ser atual se perde em frases de efeito e piadinhas irônicas a cada dois minutos que quase impedem qualquer boa cena de existir. Tonal e tematicamente desprovido de qualquer decisão do que quer ser, mas simultaneamente 100% didático ao nível infantil, calculado para reações e comentários específicos durante e pós filme por parte do público, determinado em virar um fenômeno cultural momentâneo.

    Ao mesmo tempo, inegável que é um filme surgido…

    ★★★★★

    From war crimes to student debts, the weight of american hypocrisy on one's shoulders. The only options are to close yourself from everything and everyone and live in pain or to transfer this pain to whomever seems deserving of this violence so long contained.
    Reality is controlled, cold and sad. The mind is an open canvas to experiment with all sorts of deranged feelings.
