5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant !, 19 Jun. 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: The Long Riders [DVD] (DVD)
Maybe I`m having a mid-life crisis but I find myself watching this movie(which I only saw for the first time two years ago when it was shown on tv) repeatedly, probably about ten times in the last couple of years, and it gets better with each viewing. What`s so remarkable about this is that I don`t usually like westerns at all. But The Long Riders is just fantastic. The lack of "iconic" western stalwarts like John Wayne and Clint Eastwood et al is a significant contributing factor to the sheer class of this movie. The fact that I happen to like James and Stacy Keach and David and Keith Carradine helps a lot too. Not too sure about Randy Quaid though, who, to me, has the sort of face more suited to a comedy role.
Anyway, it`s a great movie all round. The music, from Ry Cooder`s slide guitar to the traditional songs and tunes, is inspired. The scene, near the end, where the gang attempt to rob the Northfield bank makes for compelling viewing and I have watched this particular part of the film countless times.
I think I`m addicted to this movie!

I am a fan of westerns. Now 64yrs, I still look to my collection of westerns. My older Brother, Eddiie used to take me on a Friday night to the 'flicks' or 'the pictures'. We had lost both our Parents a few years earlier. Eddie was my big Brother, Dad, rolled into one, bless him. Friday nights were our our nights and I remember the feeling I experienced when I heard it was a western. Have watched this film so many times. For me, it is iconic. Love the music in the saloon scene as they walk in.
