Hud is all about a tour-de-force acting performance by Paul Newman, who brings charisma and life to an unlikable character. The film is essentially a character study of the womanizing, often drunk Hud who is surrounded by fascinating supporting characters. When these characters clash, the resulting tension and drama is fascinating.

Hud is an effective film that tells the end of an era, and a type of man. This change is personified by the family in the film with Homer the father as the honest man who believes in always doing what is right, Hud who is amoral always looking for the easy way out of any situation, and stuck in between is the grandson showing an uneasiness to go in either direction. The dynamic and tale of this conflict is a somber, and powerful story.

I thought it was pretty good. Although, it's not quite as good as I had hoped it would be. The dialogue in it is great, like all Paul Newman movies.

"Hud" by Yojimbo

An elderly cattle man and his hard-drinking womaniser of a son find themselves at odds when their ranch is threatened by an outbreak of foot and mouth disease. Hud was a contemporary western that concerned itself with the passing of the role of the traditional cowboy in American society. The direction is understated and artful with some beautifully composed snap shots of Americana which is complimented by the attractive black and white cinematography and the dialogue is snappy and well observed. But it is Paul Newman's performance that is the showstealer and he brings a lot of charisma to what is essentially a very unsympathetic character. A little too soapy and melodramatic for my taste, it's one of those films I found myself appreciating more than enjoying. Good, but not one of the grea...

"Nobody gets out of life alive."

Hud is a fantastic work, less strictly a Western than a character study about the transition from old West to new. Paul Newman is solid, if a bit overwrought, as the title character, a soulless rancher in rural Texas who spends most of his time sleeping with other men's wives and fruitlessly pursuing his housekeeper. Brandon de Wilde is also quite good as his young nephew, a fundamentally good kid who looks up to his uncle and longs for his approval. Melvyn Douglas is superb as Hud's father, stolid and self-righteous, clinging to the old ways and loathing his cad of a son. Best of all is Patricia Neal as the housekeeper--she effortlessly evokes a strong, self-reliant woman, earthy but also tender and vulnerable. The impact of her work may be seen by its receipt of the Best Actress Os...
