"City Slickers" (1991)

Grade (8.5/10)

One of the great western-comedies that gives a little bit of everything including tons of laughs. 

“CITY SLICKERS” stars Billy Crystal, Daniel Stern and the late Bruno Kirby as three middle-aged men all dealing with their own mid-life crises that decide to spend two weeks on a cattle drive, living off the land, sleeping under the stars and escorting a herd of cows from New Mexico to Colorado on horseback. 574 more words


Film Review: Compañeros

Sergio Corbucci made a spiritual successor to “The Mercenary” with “Compañeros”. And like that film, it is a Zapata western starring Franco Nero and Jack Palance. 280 more words

Film Review: The Mercenary

Sergio Corbucci’s “The Mercenary” is a very refined and well executed spaghetti western affair. Then again, I have yet to see a Corbucci film that didn’t cut the mustard. 230 more words

Le Mépris: Godard, marriage and movie-making

Le Mépris (released in the US as Contempt) is widely regarded as one of Jean-Luc Godard’s most accessible films. It has the feel of a big budget movie, includes some polished and assured performances, and a sublime score from Georges Delerue. 1,397 more words

One Thing

For those of us who experienced the 90’s, you probably remember this scene from the movie “City Slickers”. The premise behind the movie was basically that these men from NY had lost their identity, so they travel out west to a cattle ranch to sort of ‘find themselves’.   678 more words
