Slow West – John McLean (2015) ***

Since I saw him excel in Steve McQueen’s “Hunger”, I go to see every new Michael Fassbender movie. Slow West is certainly not his best, but it’s good entertainment: a combination of a ferry tale, a classic western and some Tarantinoesque shooting scenes. The story line is pretty straightforward: a Scottish boy looking for the woman he loves needs chaperoning of an outlaw, leading to some adventure (and some bits of wisdom). The beautiful New-Zealand landscape makes a perfect 19th century America.
