Clint directs his first western and makes a violent and action oriented film. And it's great.
I loved the supernatural/mystic element of The Stranger. And the action is pretty well shot. It's very well shot, after all he must have picked up some experience working with Leone.
Movie's about a strange gunslinger who arrives into town and causes a little ruckus. The town is in dire need of help from a good gunfighter, due to some prisoners being released soon who will be looking for vengeance on the Town.
The stranger, as is often the case, is playing both side. He wants revenge on the prisoners AND the town.
I really liked it. But to be honest, the rape early in the movie really bugged me. Even if he wanted revenge on the town, or if that woman had done terrible things to the marshal, can't quite condone that. And then he forces himself on to another woman!
