Pale Rider (1985)

Pale Rider (1985, USA) C-115m. SCOPE ** D: Clint Eastwood. Starring Clint Eastwood, Michael Moriarty, Carrie Snodgress, Chris Penn, Richard A. Dysart, Sydney Penny, Richard Kiel, Billy Drago, Buddy Van Horn. Typical Eastwood western, although his formula started to show aging signs. The archetypal 'Man With No Name', in the guise of a preacher, reappears in a small gold mining town, which is terrorized by a landowner. Good performance by Moriarty, otherwise film is hardly rousing. Okay, for Eastwood fans. Inexplicably, this was nominated for the Golden Palm in Cannes!
