HIGH PLAINS DRIFTER
1973. US. Dir. Clint Eastwood. With Eastwood, Verna Bloom. 105 min.
Eastwood becomes a town’s militant guardian angel, ostensibly protecting while meting out judgment on its sinful citizens with humiliation, abuse, and destruction. This stylishly apocalyptic film riffs on Eastwood’s own screen persona and challenges the established notions of heroism in America’s second favorite pastime, The Western.
