Appaloosa | Chicago Reader


Ed Harris's performance as Jackson Pollock was probably the best thing about his directorial debut, Pollock (2000), and it's largely the performances that linger in his second feature (2008), a solidly constructed traditional western that he and Robert Knott adapted from a Robert Parker novella. Harris and Viggo Mortensen star as hired guns, Jeremy Irons is the ruthless rancher they're tangling with, and Renee Zellweger is a mannerist standout as the promiscuous and unpredictable widow who wins Harris's heart. This isn't a visionary western like The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada (2005), but in its own quiet way it delivers the goods. R, 114 min.
