This week’s films are westerns, more by theme than location. Some of the theme elements that are emphasized are a strong code of honor, direct or private justice, and an abstract or distant version of law. Often, friends and enemies will be different people at the end of the film than they were at the beginning.
As always, this is not intended to be an all-inclusive list. If you have a film that would make a good addition to this list, please write us via comments below!
