OLD HENRY


Screen Shot 2022-03-22 at 11.56.57 PMThe best damn Western you ever need to see.

This taught, straight-ahead Western steadily builds toward its inevitable resolution with a neatly placed thematic hook grounded in history.

"Old Henry's" slow-burn fury galvanizes the father and son relationship at its core.

Stephen Dorff makes for a convincing gunslinger.

Tim Blake Nelson is still the best kept secret in Cinema. Shhhhh.

Chickens come home to roost.
