not a film that you’re likely to watch without having some feeling about it. it’s about an unnamed drifter played by eastwood (who else?) who enters a town and immediately makes his presence known. within his first few minutes in town he’s killed three men and (sorta) raped a woman. by the end of the film, though, much of the history of the town and the stranger is revealed which illuminates his behavior and character. it’s a fine film that grows in the memory with time.
