Last week, Jane Got a Gun
premiered, and both Bone Tomahawk
and The Hateful Eight
are still on their world tours. The so-called "westerns" are no longer as rare as they used to be.
Clearly, that genre is currently decades removed from its heydays, be it the American fairy-tale heroics from the fifties or the Italian exploitation baddies of the sixties. Today's social and political climate have made this particular part of US history a moral minefield.
Still, it is that very uneasiness which makes the western such a unique background to tell many an interesting story. Indeed, several filmmakers managed to use the genre to make fun, great, or otherwise interesting films after the year 2000.
So our question of the week is: what is your favorite western which was made in the last fifteen years?
