Undoubtedly one of the best westerns I’ve ever seen. Superb, Oscar-worthy performances, particularly from Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, and newcomer Hailee Steinfield. Lovely score. Amazing cinematography (the film was shot in New Mexico and Texas). A thrilling, climactic showdown that made me want to stand up and cheer. And very interesting commentary on the nature of revenge. Good stuff.
