Storyline

In a future where society has come full circle and man lives by the code of the guns at his side, a fugitive, a vengeful son, a killer, and a servant stand in a four-way face-off from which only one man can walk away. To the east lies seven boomtowns connected by railroad, and to the west is a Utopian community that cowers in fear of the outside world. Dividing these two areas is an arid stretch of desert known only as "The Badlands." Now, these four gunmen stand facing one another with their fingers on their triggers, their fates won't be known until the gun smoke clears. Written by Jason Buchanan

Hit or Myth
2 November 2009 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

The overt mythic qualities of Six Reason Why nearly suffocate the agile and action-based story line that concerns cowboys laying down the law of the land with their six shooters. Long moments are spent showing the cowboys guns fingered into readiness as they face each other down; characters peer at each other from beneath the brim of their hats; the only horse in the film gets long camera takes almost as if as a separate character his appearance states a certain truth about the place this film holds in the Western myth.

The filmmakers eschew any semblance of character goal-achieving objectivity by locating the essence of their tale in storytelling and a dialogue-driven re-affirmation of the code of the old west, with more than a few twists and turns to renovate the film vehicle into a post-modern parable told and retold in flashback as with each successive plot point we go into each character's past to see how they have arrived at the present place in the tale. The overt concept that the Nomad uses as motivation for dispatching his prey is nebulous and without an objective correlative that identifies it must be found in the viewer as part of the baggage he brings to the film from seeing just this kind of western before.
