DVD: True Grit

True Grit

I’d missed this one at the cinema, but it was high on my to-watch list, and so with Kel getting an early night for once, it was tie to see what the Coen’s take on a Western would be.

While no Unforgiven, this is a really solid Western, with good characterisations, lots of sweeping wilderness / journey shots mixed with some dialog and just enough action to give a sense of the dangers that are forever in the background.

It’s a tale of the search for justice, and the terrible cost that comes from that search. If you’re a fan of the Coen brothers, or of the Western genre in general, then it’s worth your time.
