The Missing - Not to be missed.,
This review is from: The Missing [DVD]  (DVD)
This is a film that uses the western genre to explore the nature of the father/daughter relationship. Both Tommy Lee Jones and Cate Blanchett give superb performances as the estranged pair. The writing and the acting in this film complement each other beautifully, and this film could well make it into the category of "The Great Western".
This film can be watched purely as a cowboys and indians western but there is more to it than that. It has an almost elegaic quality that makes it both attractive and compelling to watch, it is full not only of action, but also has an emotional depth that strikes chords with the viewer.
Is this film worth watching? Yes it is, watch it and you will not only be entertained, you will fnd it stays with you for some time afterwards.
