I took my young son to see this movie yesterday in L.A.

I love Westerns, and this one did not disappoint. Indeed, I have a newfound appreciation for Christian Bale. He deserves some nominations for his performance, as does Rosamond Pike for hers (the woman can put on the most intense emotional expression ever; she's unreal).

At the New York Times, "Review: ‘Hostiles’ Grapples With the Contradictions of the Western."

And see Kenneth Turan's review, at the Los Angeles Times, "The western springs back to life with 'Hostiles,' a brutal tale of moral survival."

The official trailer is here.
