Review
The western as myth; hill's story of the James/Younger gang and the violent hunt for them revels in it's connections with the genre as passed down from Ford, Hawks and Ray. The gangsters are revealed as representing a wider community, the defeated Confederacy, small farmers and their extended families in general, with their victims being some combination of class enemies, uncaring, urban and Northern, and hence how they became folk heroes in their home state of Missouri... and all with a great soundtrack by Ry Cooder.
