The Ballad of the Suppressed Laughter
7 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

I have seen a lot of western movies but none of them was as bad as The Ballad of Lefty Brown. Let me say up front that Bill Pullmans performance was the only good thing in it. It seems that the producers spent most of their money on him. Unfortunately he is not able to save the movie from being a debacle. The acting of the other characters is TERRIBLE, especially from the boy. The cinematography is quite lazy. With a such a spectacular landscape(Montana) you could do better. The colors of the movie are all over the place and the tone is inconsistent during the movie. I did like the grainy feel(shot on Kodak film) but in some of the night shots it was way to dark for me to see and it didn't feel like a stylistic element done on purpose. The editing is also worth mentioning...The fight scenes where done in the usual boring technique we are so used to see from Hollywood movies. No punch is actually seen, only a cut accompanied with a very unrealistic sound effect. The shootouts where a joke! Sometimes they take cover behind bushes and thin wooden planks. The people in the movie all look very clean, the leather holsters, saddles, etc seem like fresh out of production. The story is soo unrealistic all the time and the characters in it are plain stupid..all of them! The script...what where they thinking??? Now I know that western movies are not realistic but this movie had just so many flaws and it was hard to be quiet during its run time to not ruin other peoples experiences. This film should be called "The Ballad of the suppressed Laughter"...at least for me.
