    There have been some decent westerns on Netflix lately that have come out in the last few years.

    The Duel
    Badlands

    To name a few off the top of my head.

    That is a deceptive trait; the moniker “Western” is more related to the country of origin than the style of storytelling; i.e. it’s set in the American Frontier West because that was the easiest point of reference on a cultural level.

    Space, like a future frontier colony world, can function just as well as an 1870s New Mexican ghost town; it’s all about the order and structure of the narrative and the setting.

    Similar to No Country for Old Men.

    I think I'd classify it as a neo-western or a postmodern western.

    And I think QT says "Django Unchained" is not a western, but a "southern."

    it might be taylor lautner's best work, just behind his stint on the show Cuckoo.

    Oh buddy, thank you for this. Just found it on a stream and let me tell you. It's good. Not a western in the same way Yellowstone isn't a western. But it's modern day western.

    Hell, I think half the cast plays in Yellowstone.

    I think you have to put a time frame on it, cuz otherwise shit like Breaking Bad could be considered a western. Hell, you could almost argue for There Will Be Blood as a western.(It's not, but a lot of the elements are there).


    I just hope we someday get a quality Blood Meridian adaptation :pray:

    I’m of the opinion that westerns don’t just stop happening because of a time period cut off point. Breaking Bad is as much a western as sicario is and I consider both crime sagas.

    no country for old men
    hell or high water
    wind river

    these are westerns.. stories that are as much about the western frontier as they are the stories that take place within them.

    Read my post again. I know Yellowstone is a western. I was trying to say Yellowstone is more so western than Wind River. :beerchug:

    I guess it's the same thing. I don't want to get off on small technicality.


    Good ain't it.
