Tarantino's Favourite Western...


Quentin Tarantino has said on several interviews his fav Western is Ride the Whirlwind. The most well known interview is a special feature on the Reservoir Dogs DVD, where he says Whirlwind is the most naturalistic Western ever made.

edit
Although apparently he has a lot of favourite westerns....

Tarantino's favourite western is Rio Bravo (his favourite movie, by the way).

That's funny! I just read that his favorite western was The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. I have to agree on that one. Ride The Whirlwind is a nice effort by a young actor (Nicholson), but Sergio Leone's movie is a masterpiece.

Yeah, the story I heard is that Rio Bravo is QT's fave Western, and fave movie non-stop. A staggeringly arrogant and apparently accurate comment from Quentin is that any woman he hooks up with had 'better *beep* well like Rio Bravo, or I'm outta there.' That's paraphrased, but correct in content.

My fave Westerns:

High Plains Drifter
Rio Bravo
The Outlaw Josey Wales
High Noon
For A Few Dollars More
The Treasure Of The Sierra Madre
The Good The Bad & The Ugly
The Magnificent Seven
True Grit
The Searchers
Dances With Wolves
Heaven's Gate (the European theatrical cut)
Little Big Man

I bought it today cos I saw it in the bargain bin and I trust Tarantino's recommendation. I dont expect it to be too impressive but I bet I'll have fun watching it if Tarantino's a fan
