The genres this movie tries to get away with are countless: Noir, western, drama. There's even a musical number that seems out of place. It had the same type of ending as Witness for the Prosecution: it has a shocking reversal that changes everything and makes the film stand tall and unforgotten. This is probably my favorite western. Or at least the best one I've seen.

"Pursued" by Yojimbo

Robert Mitchum plays a rancher who has been stalked since childhood by a one armed man with a grudge, without ever knowing why.The themes of twisted psychology, sibling rivalry, jealousy and revenge presented by shadow steeped photography and narrated by Mitchum who is on top form as the hapless anti-hero who is unwillingly forced to kill by circumstances beyond his control all point to the same thing; I don't care how many stetsons or six guns are on show, this IS Film Noir. The intelligent character driven plot is all very Freudian, which makes for a very unusual hybrid of genres. It looks fantastic and has a solid supporting cast, the pick of which is Judith Anderson as the matriarch whose guilty secret lies at the core of the events Mitchum finds himself caught up in. I'd never heard ...
