Looks Like I Picked the Wrong Week to quit Amphetamines

Looks Like I Picked the Wrong Week to quit Amphetamines

Another western here,i can see why this was so high up the list.There are some really good cuts and transitions AND ,wait for it, it runs in real time.The first film i seen that ran in real time was Phonebooth and that was around 2002.You can really feel the tension build as the time ticks down.The plot is this;a Marshall of a small town put a crook down and he got sentenced to a hanging,guy got sent up north and it was reduced to life and now he got a pardon and is landing into town at noon on the train.His 3 buddies are already at the station waiting for him.Kane,the Marshall is trying to get a posse together to help him and spends the hour looking for some.He gets none.At noon shit goes down and we have a classic shoot out.

IMDB RATING      –     8.1
MY RATING     –    7
SEEN BEFORE     –     NO
RECOMMEND?     –     MAYBE
OVERALL     –  OKAY.BUT I KEPT THINKING OF AIRPLANE EVERY TIME I SEEN BRIDGES.
