High Plains Drifter
High Plains Drifter (1973)
A stranger (Clint Eastwood) enters a small town “Lago” to stay for the night. He is a mysterious gunfighter. He scares town people with nothing. He guns down three gunmen, who unsuccessfully tried to shoot him down. The town people hire him to defend the town from three murderous outlaws, Stacey Bridges, Bill Borders and Cole Carlin who have just been released from the jail after they brutally whipped to death the town’s local lawman Marshal Jim Duncan. These three outlaws return to the town soon to find themselves dead by whipping, hanging and shooting.
This movie starring and directed by Clint Eastwood is quite cryptic. Although seems like everything working fine with no obstacles, some words expressed by the characters are quite relational with past conspiracies that are very hard to conjure up by just viewing the movie. When the stranger leaves the town with minima hints of who he is to Marshal Jim Duncan, the movie gets over. This movie is worth watching. It’ll boogie around your brain for hours. Best of Luck guys! Do watch it for least movies end with such mysteries. I rate it 4/5.
