English An unconventional western that's definitely worth your attention, if only for the ending, which is simply good. The performances are the highlight of this film, which Robert Altman superbly stylized, creating something unforgettable and uniquely his own. It's like it would be only half as impactful without the music of Leonard Cohen. ()
