Written using the vernacular of about 165 years ago, there were entire paragraphs of Blood Meridian where I had very little idea what was happening. Then there was the brutality and violence. And yet, I loved it all.
Watching a movie like this makes me realize I watch a lot of crappy movies. I didn’t even think it was a good ‘good’ movie and it blows away most of the dreck I give 3 stars. Watch out for that first scene, it’s a doozy.
