Claude 'Sweet Tooth' Barbee:
On the Enchanted Rock segment that had been deleted. I'm afraid it's gonna be damn near impossible for an outlaw to make an honest living.

This film won't appeal to everyone, it's more for people that watch a LOT of movies and tired of formulas.
I can't quite tell you what this film is, at best it's a Weird Western and a good one. I did not know what was going to happen next, and the villains were the protagonists so that different as well.
The strong point is the dialogue, Graves and Meeks have created a patois that is completely captivating. I don't know that it's historically accurate, but it felt like it came from another time, and it made a lot of the scenes work.
Someone else can summarize the film, and those reviews are easy to find. I think that it's more important to set the proper expectation for this film. It doesn't fit neatly into any genre and it isn't predictable. If you can live with that, you're going to like this film.
