Rating: B+ -- Compared to other Westerns, Johnny Guitar is high art--richly atmospheric and with noir elements that will remind viewers of such dramatic films as Key Largo. Full Review

While I won't say that I loved the film (it retains enough of its genre's tropes to not quite work for me), I was surprised by how glorious the sets and landscapes looked. Full Review
Rating: 5/5 -- Unforgettably strange and brilliant. Full Review
The strangest western ever made in Hollywood, a screaming opera of Freudian signs, a camp genre nova of colour-codings, and epic battle for gender supremacy played out in a dream landscape of cowboys and outlaws and sexually maddened frontier women...
Sight and Sound
A slyly radical psychosexual oddity busting through genre conventions, beyond its Old West Arizona setting ... Full Review
Ray produces magic in the most unexpected and unlikely places.
Double-crosses, beautiful losers, gunplay and waterfalls and fire and whiskey, it's all here. Full Review
An off-kilter but intriguingly sensational western about a lady saloon-keeper who learns her wealth and power can't buy everything as a town full of jealous monsters try to overrun her property. Women wear the pants (and guns) in this pre-feminist exercise in gender neutrality.
- Filmed in Trucolor by Consolidated.
