Damsel is a deconstructed Western comedy that has a solid first half of Western, but once it starts deconstructing just falls apart. The film follows Samuel Alabaster, played with wonderful detail and quirk by Robert Pattinson, as he searches for his love Penelope, forcefully acted by Mia Wasikowska, with a drunk preacher and a miniature pony named Butterscotch. 651 more words

Damsel is probably the best of a trio of feminist Westerns to grace the big and small screen this year. Woman Walks Ahead, where Jessica Chastain serves as a witness  narrator to the death of Sitting Bull and the end of the Western’s idea of the blood thirsty Indian; and the Netflix’s series Godless, about a town of Western widows who must defend themselves from evil corporate profiteers led by Emmy nominated Jeff Daniels are the others. 155 more words
