Budd Boetticher made brilliant “little” westerns better than just about anyone. Seven Men From Now is just one in an unbroken string of masterful oaters that Boetticher calmly rolled out during the 50s and 60s. Revered by critics and cineastes, Boetticher is a subtle giant of American cinema, and boy, could that man make westerns, y’all! –Jonathan Demme
