If Eric Rohmer directed a Western, it’d be something like this. A wandering adventurer tries to come home to the family he abandoned. And while Vilmos Zsigmond’s photography is indeed gorgeous, those on the imdb who claim this should be up there with Days of Heaven are forgetting one thing: Terrence Malick’s film had depth, humor, characters you actually cared about. Peter Fonda’s performance here is just transcendently bad. It makes me realize what a genius Victor Nunez is for actually getting some life out of him in “Ulee’s Gold.” The dissolves, freeze frames and Native American flutes on the sound track, well, one would be willing to overlook them as trappings of the time if the movie was any good. But it is not. It is just plain bad.
