Slow West

"A wonderfully dreamy take on the western. Like all movies that use their fantastic surroundings, Slow West is best seen on a big screen." - Philadelphia Inquirer

"An angular Western that sublimates the fading promise of the New World into a fairy tale of unrequited love, Slow West starts with 'once upon a time' and ends with this crackle of incredible savagery. Narrated by a cynical Irish bounty hunter called Silas (Michael Fassbender, excellent), the film tells of a 16-year-old boy named Jay (Kodi Smit-McPhee) who’s sailed across the ocean from Scotland in search of his sweetheart, Rose. The naive Jay might be the only person west of the Mississippi unaware that Rose has a massive bounty on her head. But Silas knows the score when he offers to escort Jay through Colorado. Meanwhile, a gang of unsympathetic vultures has picked up the scent.

"Like any good Western, Slow West percolates with the constant threat of violence, but debuting feature director John Maclean wrings the genre for its mythic value. Everything in his film is touched by the daydream delusions of its hero, especially Robbie Ryan’s gorgeous cinematography, glazing a brutal chapter of American history with the elusive innocence of young love. Running a terse 84 minutes, the movie leaves a lasting impression." Time Out
