The Dark & Crazy Side of the Wild West
12 October 2018 | by danshepherd123See all my reviews

This is a fantastic movie - beautifully shot and acted showing the dark and bleakly funny side of the lawless Wild West. If you love the Coen Bros (who doesn't?) then you'll love this.

The movie is made up of six different stories - so you get 6 for the price of 1!

Highly recommend.
