Wyatt Earp by Lawrence Kasdan( Visual )

Who was Wyatt Earp? Was he a hero? A civilized man who became a killer? A gifted lawman? A man who catechized violence? This romanticized biopic begins at the beginning, with Wyatt born on a farm with a stern but loving father, a kind but realistic mother, and many brothers. He studies law, takes a wife, buys a house, and settles into an unremarkable life. When his wife dies, he goes off the deep end--ending up in prison. Freed by his father, he flees, and begins a new life. This life will take him to Dodge City, where along with brothers Virgil and Morgan he becomes a lawman. He befriends Doc Holiday, and earns a reputation while accumulating a long list of enemies. When tragedy befalls one of the Earp brothers, Wyatt goes on a hunt to avenge his family's honor and in the process thrusts himself permanently into the folklore of the American West

"Ein Kopfgeldjäger und seine Gefangene landen mit der Postkutsche in einem verschneiten Städtchen in Wyoming, wo sie ein Schneesturm in eine Hütte zwingt, in der sechs undurchsichtige Gestalten sie in ein Wortgefecht verstricken, das auf eine gewaltsame Eruption zusteuert. Was als (Schnee-)Western beginnt, erinnert in der kunstvollen Mischung aus Klaustrophobie, Paranoia und gegenseitigen Verdächtigungen immer mehr an eine Agatha-Christie-Verfilmung. Die Inszenierung betont durch ihr extremes Breitwandformat die bedrängende Enge, die detailreichen Bilder zeigen jede Pore, die Darsteller haben sichtlich Freude an ihren überzeichneten Rollen. [...]" []
