Meek’s Cutoff (Kelly Reichardt, 2010). A re-look at Reichardt’s distinctive Western, about a group of travelers taking a very wrong path. Knowing what was going to happen this time, the final moments – a mysterious tree, an Indian walking away, the breakdown of the bullshitter who made the group lost – felt very strong indeed. I’ve recently seen First Cow, another Reichardt Western, which is different in feel, but a beauty all the same.
