|Good story; lots of dust, not much flying lead.||Me07 10/21/2010 |
| The book was a set of stories about the end of a time, place and culture with rough western for breaks. It was exelent. The movie does a fine job of bringing the stories and humer to the screen.|

| Monte Walsh is to Lee Marvin what Tom Horn is to Steve Mcqueen This is a western. But only in the sense that it takes place in the west,on horseback during the era ( or rather the end of the era ) of the true cowboy. It is a poignant story of a man, who is nearer to the end of his life than the begining , and finds himself in an ever changing world into which he no longer fits. Circumstances involving his best friend, and his lover make for a surprisingly touching and introspective story. A story in which one cannot help but care about the characters. I highly recommend watching it.|
