Quotes

Carole: He's sick.
Ridgeway: I know. I've seen this sickness before. It's an old familiar road. Hurt, revenge, hate... all gets twisted in the mind. First thing you know, the mind gets twisted like a hard, hard knot. If there isn't anybody to get it out, it just explodes.

The versatile Mr. Dureya
31 May 2008 | by LordOfAll777See all my reviews

What absolute nonsense that a previous reviewer states that Mr. Dureya cannot carry off nice in this film. The guy was acting for over 30 years and was a brilliant, versatile actor. Sure , he could play villains to perfection and because of this was well known and cast in these parts. But during his 30 years of film acting he frequently was cast as a good guy and he played these roles well.The Bounty Killer does ask too much in his age, sure, the part was written for a younger guy but as Dureya is so exceptionally good as the naive easterner it still works well.It's a wonderful film, it's low budget but it's a fine well acted and well written western.
