Mr. Timothy Gibbons

"Don't be fooled into thinking this a straightforward western... a cool play on morality."
The Crossing (Border Trilogy) (paperback)

"A sparse and poetic journey of youth and lost innocence. Heartbreaking."
Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee: An Indian History of the American West

"How the west was won...  by genocide, near extinction and repatriation. A sorry period of US history."

"When Mr Leonard still wrote westerns. A violent, cracking story."
Once They Moved Like The Wind: Cochise, Geronimo and the Apache Wars
Once They Moved Like The Wind: Cochise, Geronimo and the Apache Wars
"Geronimo in particular comes across as a scary, fascinating but flawed and brutal man. An interesting insight into the protracted struggle that arose from a misunderstanding."

"Countless repeat viewings of this film still doesn't deminish it's quality. A film entirely composed of anti-heroes heading for a violent end. Yet you still feel for them..."

"Fonda's Frank is one, great villian. Spaghetti not usually my taste but this one bucks that trend."

"James/Younger gang, again Walter Hill. With a few Peckinpah-esque moments. Gritty though."

"Paul Newman as a white man raised by Apaches. A great story from an Elmore Leonard book of the same name. Directed by Martin Ritt."

"Nicely shot with good performances. Measured pace but it suits the tone of the film."

"The (relatively) modern west. One of Newmans greatest performances... not a western as such, more a character study. Again, directed by Martin Ritt."

"Has to be included. A solid, epic film. Not read the book yet though, which is far superior so I've heard."
