Quotes

[first lines]
James Blackthorn aka Butch Cassidy: Dear Ryan, I reckon you're feeling a little lonely now that your mother's gone. You're too young for something like this. I know she must have told you about me, and I for one never stopped thinking about you. Even though I've never seen you, I'd bet my best memories that I'd recognize you in the blackest night.

Western cinematography is not dead...
11 September 2011 | by mag6581See all my reviews

Westerns are all about cinematography, and Blackthorn is no exception.

Wide, sweeping vistas are the order of the day -- but this time, they're something new: South America, and in particular, Bolivia. This tale of an aging-exiled American outlaw and his attempts to return home may seem a bit straightforward and tame, but in the end it's not and you'll be glad to have spend the hour and forty-five minutes partaking in this latest great example of the genre.

The directing isn't too bad either and the actors generally deliver their lines well, although a few are a bit over-read.

For a modern western that's not an adolescent fantasy and has a great deal of heart, it gets 9/10.
