The Proposition 2006

In this uncompromising Australian period drama, conscience competes with loyalty and love spurs revenge. Three brothers fight for their place in a beautiful, brutal landscape, but one must be forsaken to save another in the unconscionable "Proposition". Set in the 1880s, the film opens in the middle of a frenzied gunfight between the police and a gang of outlaws. Charlie Burns (Guy Pearce) and his brother Mikey are captured by Captain Stanley (Ray Winstone). Together with their formidable brother Arthur (Danny Huston), they are wanted for a brutal crime. Stanley makes Charlie a seemingly impossible proposition in an attempt to bring an end to the cycle of turmoil. (read more)

The Proposition Movie Review by Chris (10/26/2008)

'The Proposition' is one of the darkest, most violent western films I have ever seen. Shot in Austrailia, directed by John Hillcoat and starring Guy Pearce and Ray Winstone, 'The Proposition' is a great movie. As Ben had pointed out in his review, the cinematography is amazing. There is a lot of desolate feelings here and...

The Proposition Movie Review by Movie Addict (4/7/2008)

The cinematography, music, and costuming in this dark western from Australia make it worth watching.

There is not a lot of dialog except for Captain Stanley (Ray Winstone) and Eden Fletcher (David Wenham). Well, we mustn't forget the drunken Jellon Lamb (John Hurt). He did tend to rattle on a bit. I really can't square...

The Proposition Movie Review by Ezra (3/12/2007)

Talk about revitalizing a genre! This is by far the best and most realistic Western in years, if not of all time. I'm not particularly a fan of the genre, though I have loved a few - Unforgiven, The Searchers, The Wild Bunch and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid come to mind, and Jim Jarmusch's revisionist Dead Man is one...

The Proposition Movie Review by Wes (3/5/2007)

This was the best film of 2005. A dirty, dark western that came from Austrailia. Everything about this movie is perfect. The story, the cinematography, the acting, everything is spot on. It's not really a movie, it's an experience.

The story starts with a gunfight between the Australian "police" and a group of...

The Proposition Movie Review by David (9/15/2006)

Finally a western film that will not only satisfy your craving for good ole fashioned western violence but it will leave you wanting more and thats exactly what this one does.

Within the 1st 10 mins of the movie, the audience gets thrown into a one of the most intense shoot-out scenes ever shown on the big screen. The...
