The Long Riders (1980)

Directed by
Walter Hill

This tough, uncompromising and violent Western, released in 1980, features a clever casting trick, has shades of The Wild Bunch with its flashbacks and gory, slo-mo shots, and a terrific soundtrack by Ry Cooder.

Directed by Walter Hill, four sets of brothers play four sets of brothers in the film. So that's David Carradine, Keith Carradine and Robert Carradine as the Younger brothers; James Keach and Stacy Keach as the James boys, Dennis Quaid and Randy Quaid as the Miller boys, and Christopher Guest and Nicholas Guest as the Ford brothers.

And it works, often brilliantly. The plot depicts the lives of the James-Younger gang, including in gory detail their infamous - and disastrous - 1876 bank raid in Northfield, Minnesota.

Highly recommended.
