High Plains Drifter, Hang Em High, Pale Rider, Wild Bunch, The Long Riders - all pretty cynical & violent movies! And Pale Rider; GORGEOUS scenery.

Oh, and Valley Of The Gwangi - the only western with dinosaurs!

Agree with Victor on that^^

For a "newer" film, i couldn't think of a better film.
Its quite high in my personal favourites, quite possibly top 3!
Tombstone also just got rereleased on dvd as a directors cut. Worth every penny.

There is no point mentioning the obvious ones so I won't.
Any of the list below are essential purchases
Destry Rides Again (1939 - the best"comedy"western ever made)
The Gunfighter(1950)
Monte Walsh(1970)
Will Penny(1968 I think - Charlton Heston's best ever performance)
Naked Spur(1953)
The Man From Laramie(1956)
Seven Days From Now(1957)
Man Of The West(1958 -Gary Cooper at his best)
Ride The High Country(1962 - easily Sam Peckinpah's most gentle film other than...
Junior Bonner(1972)Western a bit loose for this one but Steve McQueen was never better as a modern day rodeo rider
The Professionals(1966)
Lawman(1970)Burt Lancaster as directed by Mr E-Sure himself Michael Winner with the great Robert Ryan and Lee J Cobb in support- a neglected gem.
Plenty more if you need them

The Searchers, Rio Bravo, the Dollars trilogy, Once Upon A Time In The West, Unforgiven and the HBO series Deadwood should fix you nicely

I would suggest the following -

The Dollars Trilogy
High Plains Drifter
Unforgiven
Once Upon a Time in the West
The Outlaw Josey Wales.

You really cant go wrong with these. The surprise for me was High plains drifter, Clint at his best as an actor and director. Plays on the revenge theme very well and throws in a bit of the supernatural!

Unforgiven with Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman, Gene Hackman and Richard Harris
Tombstone with Kurt Russell and Val Kilmer

Unforgiven by Eastwood is a masterpiece. It deconstructs the idea of the heroic western ere completely by having lie upon lie being told throughout the film. Like the Sheriff's house, and the biographers book, nothing is straight or true.

Dead Man with Depp by Jarmusch is also excellent and very different.

Hi I would recommend The Good The Bad And The Ugly, High Plains Drifter and The Magnificent Seven - timeless classics that can be enjoyed again and again.
