Bone Tomahawk

Back in the day westerns were ten a penny but you don’t seem to get many anymore even on television we only really had Deadwood and Hell on Wheels to dampen our appetite for all things cowboy. So when there’s a big screen outing it will get scrutinised by critics and fans alike. Bone Tomahawk follows in the footsteps of last year’s Slow West and for want and a better word is really a road trip on horses. A simple enough story is brought to life by the characters, good and bad, the cinematography and the violence and believe me there is violence. Brutal as the times themselves the film doesn’t shy away from showing you gory details but it is essential in the overall picture being shown. Kurt Russell leads the cast looking almost identical to his character in Hateful Eight, making me wonder if the two were filmed on adjacent plots and after a few dodgy roles and his perfect turn in Fargo season 2 Patrick Wilson is now proving he has what it takes. I have heard a few say that this film is destined to grow into a cult classic and for once I cannot disagree but I urge you not to wait that long.
