THE SEARCHERS (1956) 5 stars

The most classic of all westerns. John Ford has never been better. Archetypal and iconic. John Ford explores this racist character with thoughtfulness without ever losing sight of the entertaining story. As the door shuts on him, a chapter close on this type of hero archetype. He has no place in our modern world. His racist views are gone and he’s doomed to wander the wastelands alone - cursed, just like he cursed the Comanche Indians.


Genre: Western
Director: John Ford
