Westernul anului / Western of the year
In a Valley of Violence has shades of Lucio Fulci and Clint Eastwood's High Planes Drifter in this unexpected homage to gritty westerns and the whole spaghetti genre, from the opening credits to the great music score (by Jeff Grace). Ti West's (The Sacrament, House of the Devil) most accomplished film, with elements of humor and horror. Travolta is great fun again for once, and Ethan Hawke is forgiven for the sin of Magnificent Seven. Taissa Farminga has the best performance, that after the genius dog Abby (Jumpy) that steals every scene she's in. Somehow weird, this film has the same premise that John Wick has.
3 1/2 out of 5. 7 out of 10 !
