Blackthorn: Tribeca Review
Tribeca Film Festival (Arcadia Motion Pictures)
Sam Shepard, Eduardo Noriega, Stephen Rea, Magaly Solier, Nicolak Coster-Waldau
Sam Shepard delivers a beautifully understated performance in the Tribeca Film Festival-screened western which imagines the bank robber quietly living as a rancher.
That classic freeze-frame at the end of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid notwithstanding, the famous outlaw apparently did not die in a shootout with the Bolivian army in 1908. That, at least, is the conceit of Blackthorn, which imagines a now aged Butch quietly living as a rancher twenty years later. Sam Shepard stars as the iconic character in this elegiac western that is less a sequel to George Roy Hill’s film than a meditation on age and a lost way of life.
