Synopsis: True romantics seek the Wild West in Montana. With a pickup truck and an antique buffalo rifle, Jack (Jeff Bridges) and Cecil (Sam Waterston) rustle their way into the hearts of the native Montanans, who seem to have a bit of a grudge going against the New West, Nouveau Riche ranch owner (Clifton James). (sydde-1, imdb)
Awards: none, presumably.


IMDB Comments:

Thomas McGuane, 25 years ahead of the commercial marketplace, invented the [post]modern dialogue SNAP now central to the filmfop vogue. Anyone who enjoyed Jeff Bridges as Dude Lebowski MUST see this movie. Also recommended for those interested in the final disposition of the American West, those who thought Sam Waterston might be an actor, those who can't believe Slim Pickens could improve on his "Dr. Strangelove" role, etc. - Randy Lane (imdb)

Where to obtain: Netflix, amazon, torrentage
