One of the more thoughtful and methodical westerns you'll see. Robert Redford is frequently engaging as the titular character and he carries the movie with ease. The supporting cast helps out plenty, too. But the real star of the show is the stupendous nature cinematography that helps ease the story along in a subtle and pleasing manner. This is a staple of the Western genre for good reason.November 19th, 2013 · Details
