High Plains Drifter (1973) WS R1 Custom DVD
Western, Drama, Thriller
The motor that drives HIGH PLAINS DRIFTER is a metaphysical one. A "Stranger" mysteriously appears in the dysfunctional desert town of Lago, kills three thugs who were hired by town fathers to protect the community from three vengeance-seeking outlaws soon to be released from prison, and subsequently intimidates, terrorizes, and humiliates everyone when the Stranger himself signs on to protect the town.
All the while, we are privy to bits and pieces of an earlier death in Lago: the death of a U.S. Marshal--brutally bullwhipped to death in the street--at the hands of the three imprisoned outlawsmore…. We learn the killers were set up by their employers--the Lago city fathers; and we learn why law-abiding citizens stood silently and looked the other way when their marshal was murdered. With the outlaws released and on their way back to Lago to extract numerous pounds of flesh, the Stranger is revealed for who he really is: a metaphysical Avenger who not only claims vengeance for the murder. . .but for the actions of those who were so callously duplicitous.
While Clint Eastwood has more than his fair share of locker room humor in his portrayal of the Stranger, he succeeds in coming across as a terrifying and inhumane force. When the Avenger finally confronts his killers, the effect is bloodchilling. As mentioned before, the motor that drives HIGH PLAINS DRIFTER is a metaphysical one, and it's a motor that works perfectly for this Western.
