Did you even watch this movie? Your review is ridiculous and pure garbage. I've seen this film multiple times and you're way off base on this one. I really don't even think you were paying attention to the movie. This was without a doubt the best film of the year. It was beauitful and haunting and there were no dull characters, Pitt was not 'boring' he was accurate.
Go watch Tombstone.......

Michael Sragow's is a movie critic...'nuff said. As for myself I enjoyed this character study. Sit down...relax,and watch a rare type of western, beautifully filmed and detailed story that makes you pay attention in order to appreciate it.

I don't think the reviewer, Michael Sragow, has much liking for this film- probably because he doesn't 'get' it! The very 'PostModern' aspects which supposedly undermine it- or 'deconstruct' it, as he terms this erroneously-, namely, the narration, lack of action, moody scenery, focus on the minds of the protagonists etc, are precisely the point of a 'revisionist Western'. This has little to do with John Ford & classical stuff like Stagecoach, & his linking the two is mischievous rather than helpful to the review & readers.
