The archetype for the classical Western
16 March 2000 | by (Baltimore, Maryland) – See all my reviews

*Stagecoach* used to be my favorite Western, but *Brimstone* may supplant it. Brimstone has no intellectual pretensions, but it's a perfect distillation of all cowboy movies. Every line is a great cliche.
