Movie Review by Wes
March 5th, 2007

Movie Review: The Proposition

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 bandits. Everyone in the gang is killed except Charlie (Guy Pearce) and his younger brother Mikey. Captain Stanley sits them down and offers Charlie a proposition (hence the title). Find and kill his older brother Arthur ( Danny Huston) or watch Mikey hang from a noose on Christmas day.

It's violent, gritty, and beautiful. The cinematogrophy is perfect, images of the Outback burn into your mind. The music is equally as intriguing, and suits the film perfectly. The acting is spot on, most notably Danny Huston as the sociopathic intellectual Arthur Burns.

No western has come along in twenty years that can even come close to this masterpiece.
