Interesting Synopsis of Director's Work
6 July 2007 | by woodway77See all my reviews

Just watched this entry in conjunction with the Randolph Scott / Budd Boetticher films shown on TCM. A very interesting synopsis of work and commentary from the director and some guests. I learned much about Boetticher's views and techniques from both his and the guests' commentaries (excepting only that ultra goober, Quentin Tarantino, who consistently strikes me as the kind of high-school dweeb who came in 3rd in the class-president election).

Boetticher's films have a definite style, to me quite spare and unencumbered, but nonetheless complete stories and characters. He seems to have a knack for enveloping the viewer into the story. I especially appreciate his Randolph Scott film "The Tall T", during which one feels that, with Scott as the star, he's sure to come out all right - but in the situation he finds himself, it's very hard to imagine how he will manage it.

All in all a quite enjoyable examination of one of the old-line directors who pursued his vision and technique to his own, rather than corporate, satisfaction.
