Rating: 4/5 -- This baroque bonanza fascinates on so many levels that it demands to be repeatedly viewed and reviewed. 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
Double-crosses, beautiful losers, gunplay and waterfalls and fire and whiskey, it's all here. Full Review
Rating: 5/5 -- It's not just Joan's campiness -- her line readings take on an almost incantatory quality -- but the way the whole thing feels like a stealth therapy session for smart actors trapped in horse-opera stereotypes. 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
...An anguished Western... -- Rating: A
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.
