When Doyle recommended today’s subject, I honestly had no idea what I was getting myself into, because I’d never heard of the movie before. All he told me that it was a western, and that was enough for me to give it a chance! When I saw that Tim Blake Nelson was in it, it made me even more excited, but I thought that I was getting a western comedy. We are in fact talking about Old Henry!
“A quiet man and his son take in a wounded stranger near his homestead, along with a bag full of cash. The stranger claims he’s a sheriff being pursued by outlaws, but the man can’t be sure.”
This is NOT a comedy at all, but is in fact, a straight western film. I won’t talk about it too much here because to talk about it in any kind of depth might spoil the fun twist. But, you get Nelson playing an old cowboy who just wants to get away from everything, and doesn’t want to be bothered. He’s raising a resentful son, who thinks that his father is just an old hermit crab, and is taking his life away. BUT man, those like fifteen or twenty minutes, are so good! It’s definitely worth the watch!
