The Furies (Anthony Mann, 1950)


An early, astoundingly ambitious Anthony Mann Western about a relationship with unsubtle Freudian overtones between a fickle cattle rancher and his temperamental daughter. Mann - or, at least, his scriptwriter - overreaches to an extent, but consistently he delivers one startling setpiece after another. And the performances are delicious.
