Rockstar Recommends: "The Proposition"

Posted on December 9 2009, 2:49pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Rockstar, Games

The Proposition (2005, Dir. John Hillcoat)

"I will civilize this land" announces Ray Winstone, as the justification for making a man kill his brother. The Proposition is a fantastic Western set in Australia, with an unbelievably atmospheric soundtrack and incredible cinematography.  It's a beautiful film that stands alongside the 2007 remake of 3.10 to Yuma as our favorite Western of the last decade.

Along with Straw Dogs, it's our favorite Western that is not set in the traditional "West", although you could also make a strong case for Fort Apache, The Bronx.

            Search out Sergio Corbucci's The Great Silence. It's a powerful and moody western set during an oppressive winter, with a mute hero and a ruthless villain played by Klaus Kinski!

                This is a great film. And written by Nick Cave to boot - Nick is an Australian musician based in the UK for all you yanks. Well worth checking out.

                  Straw Dogs was very interesting... and I just love High Plains Drifter, so much. Watching I spit on your grave (banned) and playing M2 today. XD

                              Sweet. Straw dogs looks particularly brutal. Found High Plains Drifter, I was wrong about 70's westerns, the're usually better than 80's and 90's ones. With the exception of Val Kilmers excellent Doc Holiday and...

                              Screw it, I'm going to suggest watching High Plains Drifter then the unofficial sequal (IMO) Unforgiven which is just damn unbefrickenlievable. O_o Best western ever. Mostly in context with the Man with no name. You guys don't mention that I will seriously have to re-evaluate Rockstars coolness levels. :p

                              There are some whoppers that are really recent that are more untraditional, one nominated and one won 4 oscars. I'll let you guys work that out for yourselves. I don't want to spoil the surprise. ^.~ hehe.
