Bone Tomahawk (2015)
Injured cowboy Arthur O'Dwyer (Patrick Wilson) joins a rescue party after discovering that his wife Samantha (Lili Simmons) is one of a group of people who have been abducted by a tribe of savage cave dwellers. When Sheriff Franklin Hunt (Kurt Russell), vengeful gunslinger John Brooder (Matthew Fox) and back-up deputy Chicory (Richard Jenkins) are surprised by the savages, Arthur, who has been lagging behind, must face the enemy alone.
John Ford's The Searchers is given a cannibalistic twist in this unusual fusion of horror and western from writer and first-time director S. Craig Zahler. Told at an extremely measured pace and primarily driven by characterisation, Bone Tomahawk might prove an arduous journey for those who demand constant action and thrills, especially with the film clocking in at a whopping 132 minutes; others, however, should find that the engaging performances from the male leads, Zahler's wry dialogue and the occasional moment of extreme violence compensate adequately for the languorous approach.
