BONE TOMAHAWK (2015)

 

bone-tomahawk

A film by S. Craig Zahler

Cast: Kurt Russell, Patrick Wilson, Matthew Fox

Here is an original idea for a western , well it is a western / horror genre film. Shot in 21 days 45 miles outside of L.A. Bone Tomahawk never feels like your typical western.
The story goes like this a female doctor, and Two others are taken from a jail. It looks like it is the Indians who has abducted them but is it really Indians ? And if so what kind of Indians are they?

 
This film is going too become a classic cult film. The dialogue is outstanding here is  some of the great dialogue plus there are the fluid boundaries between criminality, the law and savagery, sacrilege and faith. Here is 4 guys one with crushes who is on a the trail to find and rescue the others that has been taken. It is the wild that is going to be a challenge and then later a plan to get the others. Pay attention to the dialogue here. I think Hollywood needs to learn from independent film making here. This western surprised me here big time a little warning there some gore into it and  it is going to be unpleasant to watch. The film is at its purest raw form.  Kurt and the rest of the cast are fantastic in it their chemistry are flowing through their veins. I am going to get that one in my collection.

  2. I watched this last week. Really enjoyed it but man was it brutal when it hit. The acting was superb from the 4 main stars. Loved them all equally but Matthew Fox was a delight. I loved the western but jeepers when the hardcore started it was tough to look at the screen. Sure it will become a classic over time.
