How sad is this?
good back-story, and good acting
everything you have heard about this movie is true.
what a terribly boring film. I'm sorry but this is absolutely not deserving of best picture and will be forgotten quickly. Entertaining and engaging cinema? No. Nothing performances with flat faces and mistaking silence for subtlety.
This is a good movie. Not too bloody, decent movie plot. It has a few nice twists and turns that you don't necessarily expect. I completely enjoyed it.
This is the proof how fuc... up is America and why there is so much shooting and kills. I wonder who can watch this total nonsense of most profanation of family values and moral and ethics. SO sick and twisted in many ways I gonna thr.. up watching it. Such 'stories'/'movies' deserve 0 $ budget and 0 people watching it. I hope the director of this garbage to experience the same "adventure" in his life. How pathetic .. i cant forgive myself spending 2 hours watching this ..........................................
In my view: anyone who talks down on this picture or claims its only "senseless violence," just didn't get it. Truly amazing and original movie. I don't often give out that kind of praise. Rest assured, I detest overkill when it comes to blood & gore in a movie. Im a big believer in good taste. However, I also believe any kind of artistic portrayal is justified, as long as it's warranted by plot and backed by a legitimate statement. I believe that's what's going on in this picture. It's gutsy, and unflinching. It doesn't spare you the uncomfortable details, because it's trying to illustrate a point of view. Sometimes being shocked or being made to feel ill at ease forces us to question our values, examine beliefs, re-think a world view. And you should never hesitate to pressure test your views, that is, if you want to believe what's true. But, Just like pain and discomfort are involved in physical exercise, to strengthen the muscles, many times the only way to expand your mind is to be made to witness unpleasant, uncomfortable things. Then afterward: examine one's own beliefs and question them. That's a big part of "Outlaws & Angeles". I can't remember seeing such a unique, unpredictable, provocative film... maybe ever. Hollywood's not a place known for 2nd chances. In a very clannish, cut throat, unforgiving industry: really takes a lot of balls to make a movie like this one, and true talent to do it so artistically. Believe me, I hate gore and smut and profanity when they're done purely for shock value. Or in place of a real story. But those things can have a place in a film as a valid part of a story, backed by a valid statement. If you didn't like it, I recommend you give it another chance. Maybe you were turned off by something you saw then missed things as a result. Try suspending the inner moral guardian voice and be as open minded as you can. You may pick up on some things not noticed last time. "Outlaws" Blew me away, Believe me, I'm not the type who's easy to impress. It's Firmly in my top 10 of all time or higher. One of a kind Picture!
A gang of outlaws viciously rob a bank in Cuchillo, New Mexico and make off with the loot. Knowing they are being pursued they take a detour and go through an arid valley to throw off their pursuers.They rock up at an isolated farmhouse and Chapel where they take captive the preacher, his wife and their two squabbling daughters. Over the course of the night secrets are unmasked and allegiances change in a constant ebb and flow of emotions and it seems that some scores just have to be settled.Now this is a very good Western, it is realistic, well acted and does not pull any of its many punches. It starts off with the intention to shock and grab your attention and then keeps that up for the duration. There are a couple of points where you do question the on screen antics but to mention them runs the risk of being a plot spoiler. And in the final analysis they do not overly harm the full impact of this rather good and inventive film.
