It does seem to take Mr. Granger an awfully long time to get around to freezing out Mr. Taylor. That's the way sermons sometimes go.

Russell Harlan's admirably low-key cinematography complements writer/director Brooks' down-beat tone.

One of [Brooks'] better efforts.

If The Last Hunt is an excellent western, it is nevertheless, as I have attempted to show, an impure western, the result of the transition to the form of a scenario that, in essence, has nothing to do with the genre.

Ripe for rediscovery.

Except for a questionable multiplicity of gruesome close-ups of slaughtered buffalo, this is one of the best westerns in years. Superb widescreen camerawork, believable characters and slowly mounting tension...
