Awesome review... as others have said, the fact that it leaves me wanting to watch the darn thing again RIGHT NOW suggests you've really nailed it with this one.
Interestingly by coincidence, someone on BTX has posted that Western Stars has been removed from Netflix here in Australia. Ah well, it's back to the Standard Definition DVD (which is the only physical release we got here Down Under) instead of the HD stream by the looks of it...

Superb K. Just superb. I have to pull out the DVD and watch it again tonight, thank you.
I'll read this tonight with the soundtrack playing.
I'll read it a bit later also when I have the time to give it the focus it no doubt deserves.

I'll read it in the morning, as the substitute for the archive review. 🙂
What a brilliant read, thanks for writing and sharing.
I was going to make a snarky comment about you being so late and how this isn't what we pay you the big bucks for and all that...but then I read the review. Hokey smokes, what a fantastic piece.
