The Ox-Bow Incident
Western • NR • 1943 • 1 hr 16 min
A brilliant meditation on justice, mob-mentality, and human nature. Beautifully shot, assured direction, and a powerful performance by Fonda
Slow but extremely good, I feel like this movie would be great for a Psych student
Brilliant and fascinating rumination on mob justice.
Short, intense Western. local ranchers catch suspect outsiders. With little evidence serve as judge & jury. Riveting parable about justice.
Tough drama on mob mentality and lynching with no heroes. It’s a classic, but for obvious reasons wasn’t a smash hit in its day.
Well acted, particularly by Fonda. Actually a rather dark theme for a western of the era.
Slow, older western. Pretty generic but if you like older westerns, you’ll like it.
It's good but could be better
