The Great American Western (Post 4 of 12)
One of the sparsest and most intense Westerns I've every seen. The anticipation of the inevitable closing gunfight is much better than the gunfight itself. Still a classic of its type and a welcome additon to the 1001 movie list.
Speaking of sparse (And I am trying to keep my comments sparse here), I can't get that clunking but catchy theme song from High Noon out of my head.
