pretentious,"art western"
5 December 1999 | by (Panama City Beach,FL) – See all my reviews

Chinese angles, high angle shots,low angle shots, through a glass darkly shots! High art becomes high camp in the hands of this director. Somebody O.D.'d at the "foreign cinema". Not much of a plot (cowboy with post civil war syndrome), but lots of "artsy" photography. See another great view of star John (Mr.Shirley Temple)Agar in Nathan Juran's classic "Brain From Planet Arous" "water cooler" shot.If you like "Ride a Violent Mile", you MUST see "The Fiend Who Walked the West (1958)".
