Wild West Monday: Seraphim Falls review

The Tainted Archive is a daily must-read and its founder, Gary Dobbs, is—to borrow a line from Anthony Quinn—a one man tango. He single-handedly began a western revival with his Wild West Mondays of which I’ve been fortunate to be a part. WWM #3 is coming up soon so he’s asked different writers to contribute a piece of their own choosing on books, films, Old West history etc. Click on over where I’m reviewing Seraphim Falls.

Perhaps Elmore Dutch Leonard should write another Western. I wonder if there's a market for it.

As for Seraphim Falls, I've never seen it.

Off to check it out.

And a good piece it is.

JR, Leonard's westerns are among the best and it is still a very big market.

Ray, Thank you.

This is off topic, BUT I was just looking at your sidebar AND you're reading one of my favorite books and I just watched The Curious Case of Benjamin Button last night and I love Gordon Lightfoot!! What good taste we have! ;)

David Cranmer said...

Barrie, We certainly do. :)

I must review Benjamin Button when I get a chance. That was a such a fine film. And it started life as a short story.

Caroline, I'm not sure which style of writing you are referring to (my post or short story?) but thanks for stopping by and I will check out your blog.
