If you were following our dispatches from Sundance this year, you might already know to be excited for Slow West. Directed by John Maclean, the Western stars Kodi Smit-McPhee as a young man who journeys from Scotland to the American West to find his lost love (Caren Pisorious). Along the way he’s joined by Silas (Michael Fassbender), a mysterious gunslinger who guides and protects him.
As much as we love grim, gritty Westerns, part of what makes Slow West so intriguing is that it looks like so much more than that. It’s dark and violent, sure, but it’s also laced through with black humor, Biblical allegory, and even a slight a fairy tale feel. Watch the Slow West trailer after the jump. Read More »

Jauja looks like a western, but it really takes place in Patagonia in the late 1800s — and the film’s aspect ratio and general sense of tone reinforce the idea of this being something from decades past. Viggo Mortensen stars as a military captain working with the Argentine army, and the film appears to put his facility with languages to great use. Lisandro Alonso directs, and this looks like a very beautiful and unusual film for an audience that wants to see something different. Check out the Jauja trailer below. Read More »
