The best stylish Western play.
A western play that is more quiet than any western play and ends excited more than any western play.

I wonder if they could go to Australia ....

[good point]
〓〓〓he main character combination is attractive. Paul playing it as a buddy while setting a character of a royal road as a buddy but a bad guy with a gruel but a grueman with a gruel but a gruel but a bad guy, Newman and Robert. Skillful performance of Redford, I was impressed with what I see as a symbolic looking buddy relationship as more raw. It is comfortable for a light conversation play that felt the bond between them.
〓〓〓he image which cut out the grand nature reminiscent of the era of Western play is also worth seeing. You can enjoy the desert that shows various facial expressions relaxedly with skillful camera work, along with the two hero's pilgrims. It is one of the features of this work that sepia tone director sandwiched between key points.

[Bad point]
〓〓〓here is no feature like this other than a series of "good points". Although the ultimate goal of the two persons is indeed true, it is better not to expect things like the story's sharpness, etc. since the theme of the work is in the interaction of the two principals than that journey. Better or bad is the main character.

[Comprehensive evaluation]
Director: George. Roy Hill. Starring: Paul Newman, Robert Redford. Butchi, a real robber, Cassidy and Sundance, a Western drama depicting Kid's escape play, is also one of the works belonging to American New Cinema.

The charm of this work will still be in the performance of the two characters of the hero and both actors who performed it. Paul who exudes its astonishing taste to a bubble who does not keep smiling and keeps a smile.New man. Kid who is a partner is amusing as a gunman and the gap of bad head is interesting, and it was good that Robert. Redford plays that role firmly. The light conversation between these two people is also a highlight, the atmosphere that does not feel the lovely sadness and the beautiful images reflecting rich nature make the charm of this attractive combination even more compelling.

As a disadvantage, there is no interest in this story itself. It is making it as good or bad as to win with the charm of the main character and there is not much clear story nature. Just watching the two row legs.

A work of easy-to-understand making which is competing with the charm of the main character. Despite the fact that it is a criminal movie at all times, a unique style that even the idyllic atmosphere drifts was impressive.
Evaluation is "better" than very good.

I thought that the protagonist of Western play is usually a savior such as a sheriff or a flower, but this work was drawing "a robber escaping from a sheriff".
This rarity was also an eye-catching one, but it is one work that depicts such sorrows of robbers and the invisible days of tomorrow.

At first I felt faded images, "I thought it was black and white?", But it was directing.
To the end, it seems to emphasize that this is a historical drama. This Butch and Kid are also real people, the pattern of the person who was active as a burglar (in other words, it was masculine?).
In fact, these two people gave out victims well in historical fact ... well?
As it seems, I can have a likable as a hero, and there seems to be a part somewhat sympatrically depicted, but I wonder if there is such a thing if it is one person in history.

Is there a refreshing feeling like "Lupine the Third" by the hero of the train robbery doing freely?
We used a lot of gunpowder, and it was pretty flashy to do things. There was also a case where the train blown off to the edge of the tree, and it was like touching the limit without CG in taking a flashy picture anyhow.
Because I often jumped on the next horse while riding a horse, and played freely with my bicycle.
Also, these two robbery characters were somewhere, and the robbery scene was drawn somewhere in the comic, so rather than a dreadful historical fact, after all the appearance of a free hero like "Lupine the Third" was.

However, on the other hand, a number of directors as if expressing the darker going ends of the men who take the act of robbery are brilliant.
It is also a production of the wheel, but although it was a bad person, a figure that was being killed in a world that was stolen was drawn, but still feeling like living positively and getting caught in a muddy at the same time was also very good.
Originally, there was no ability other than robbery ...
As a burglar, the height of its abilities seems to have been appreciated, but again the criminal is the only one to be killed.

Somewhere pretty thieves finally made a murder and thought of a happy future, it was a muddy to go.
While last was full of bruises, I ended up fighting policemen who surround them, but it would have been nice to end here.
There is a strange positive direction for the subject of "shoot for tomorrow!", But it must be a bad end well, it should have been shot even in historical facts.

Evaluation is "very good".

Director George Roy Hill. Paul. Newman, Robert. Starring Redford.
The last stop motion is one of the best scenes in film history.
Probably Jackie. Chen starring "Shanghai. Noon" is the final scene of the scene is a parody of this scene.
Speaking of stop motion, it was used even in Alan Delon 's "Big Gun" and "Algernon Floral" something else. I wonder if the "Shinkansen Big Bang" was also so. It seems like it was being used although it is not the last though Kinji Fukasaku's "The person of the house" and "the battle without honor" are also the last. It might be a good idea to pay attention to the technique specific to the movie.
Contents are American.Not like cinema and bright atmosphere was good.
In the middle stage, I cited the farmer's life, but there was such a scene even in "the seven wilderness."
Farmer's life means subordination to society, but that is not an easy path at all for the main characters of this new cinema. It is also hard to be a farmer.
Those who like this work certainly want you to see "the seven of the wilderness." I would like to hold down the same "Sting" as the same director and starring as that.

There is no future.
This is not limited to this work, but it is definitely a good idea to mention the work that made the characters such as Butch and Sundance the main character.

Genre, western play.
The content was saying that at the end of the pioneering era, Butchi and Sundance, whose name is reputed by train robbery and bank robbery, flowed to Bolivia and ended the last.

Butchi and Sundance, who caught a lot of money by train robbery and bank robbery and are pursued by soldier, watch Bolivia rich in mineral resources,
The reality of Bolivia struck by the two people, even if it escorts the salary of the mine in order to get into the right job, it returns to the old work,
At the end, after Etta leaves under the two people, the two are besieged by the army of Bolivia and the police and close the curtain.

Two living ways that are stepped on by stepping into a place that can not be reversed are accompanied by the sadness peculiar to the person who lost the future,
The conversation of the two speakers saying "Let's go to Australia" in the circumstances of all sides and the cut of the sepia color of the last emphasized it further.

However, because the thing of "the absence of the future" attached to the work of this hand sometimes becomes a drawback, evaluation is "very good".

It is only possible to live in the world where it comes out, but left behind in the flow of the times, but the sad life of the men who are going to live while struggling in it strikes the chest.

In the second half, when the two who escaped to Bolivia managed to escort cash transportation by somehow Matmo work, the bandits attacked them,
It was cynical about having the same complaint as the employee of the railroad company that had been despising that much.

You complemented the transience that nostalgic images drift throughout the story. The theme song "Even if it gets wet by rain" was perfect for the content.

It seems to be "We do not have tomorrow", but I think that the Japanese language of foreign movies once adhered to by more translators. The title of this work will remain even more in mind when seeing that last.

The place where Butchi and Sundance escaped are already surrounded by the police force and there is no chance that ants will crawl, but I do not notice that they are not aware of the fact that they are not even thinking about their dying or the like We know that we can only have a tragic end result We invite viewers to sorrow.

The ending that ends with that stop motion is also excellent. Dare to try to avoid showing a terrible scene.

Paul. Newman, Robert to Sandan Skid. A masterpiece movie starring two historic actors, called Redford.
Applying these two people, it is difficult to make rags. Even if the screenplay or directing is bad, they can cover enough with the two performances. Indeed it is natural to become an immortal masterpiece if the screenplay and production are excellent. ... It is a favorite movie personally.

I like the actor first than the story. Originally it was Robert, not Redford but Steve McQueen's schedule, but Robert. Becoming Redford was really good.
Paul, Newman, Robert, Redford co-star, like my last favorite movie "Sting". Personally like a dream .... (Lol)

Also, the Japanese title "Shoot tomorrow!" Is also excellent. The original title is "Buchi. Cassidy & The Sandan Skid." That's it.
If it was the original title, it was not accepted to Japanese so much, I guess it is a very good adaptation.

As many of the other people are touching, the theme song is also wonderful.

I do not get tired of the story at all. Although it is based on historical facts, Butchi, Cassidy and Sandan Skid are outlaws.
I did not hate that two people and sublimated spectacularly to a charming tapping character. Of course, although the place which owes to the acting skill of the two leading performers is also large, we carefully reconstitute the historical episode and complement the two characters.

The scenes which are being pursued gradually after being chased by the ambivalent sheriffs are well drawn.
And, in the last scene, this work is going to end the tragedy once, but I do not feel a gruesome atmosphere while leaving a sad stroke.
It would also be the gift of the acting power of the two actresses and the comprehensive ability of the production that allowed it.

Two people who are driven to the stagnation of desperate situation, injured but do not feel any sense of tragedy, but brightly and violently striking each other with a light taste, after having escaped without thinking at all about their own things such as death, this time in Australia Let's go, etc. We are talking.
Is it a thing of thorough optimism, or is it a natural body for accepting all destiny ... I can make you think.

I also admired the directive of the last sepia color stop motion. Although it should have been a long time ago work, I did not understand how I did such a processing until I saw the making.
While brilliant technology, the director is also wonderful. I think that it is exactly the best last scene.

It is a work you would like to see on the unexamined people.

I like this best for Newman & Redford's work.
Even though they are criminals but two who do not hate last ....
BJ Thomas 'Even if it gets wet in the rain' is a masterpiece of a gem which can be said as a standard now.

Paul. Newman and Robert. Red Ford is still cool.
He also co-starred in "Sting" and is an irregular combination.
I hope the way to finish in the last, I feel like a movie to show these two people (lol

Two people repeating bank robbery and train robbery.
No matter how cool you are, the villain is a rogue so it will be chased gradually.
Desperate escape is also surrounded by the army in South America Bolivia ....

Even though it's a rogue, they are two people who can not hate somewhere.
It is strange even for me to be sad last.

A masterpiece of Western play!
Paul Newman and Robert Redford are outstandingly cool.
Below is a simple impression.
Production full of humor by train robbery.
The fun of the screenplay until escaping from the tracking team hired by a railroad company.
A name scene to ride a bicycle with two people, Newman and Catherine Ross.
The theme song 'Wet wet by rain' is wonderful.
The last scene that left a strong impression.
It is my favorite movie.

Chari Rolling Back to the rain of BGM singing (famous?) Is a masterpiece. Even this alone is the best.
Just the preceding "We ..." brought the honeycomb to the last, but the last stop of this was indigestion. I guess that the bad guys should not beat themselves to grind (laugh)

This is a nice movie that is fashionable, cool and a little relentless.
The two main characters are real people, and there are several movies that dealt with "wall hole robbery group" besides this work.
It seems that Cachidy played with a bicycle picked up in front of a girl friend is also a true story.

Paul. Newman and Robert, a movie taken with a real actor 's tag called Redford.
Redford seems to like this Sundance.Kid quite a lot, and he has the name of a movie company he has developed.

The two main characters are so-called train robbers, but with the passage of time the business did not go well, eventually being forced to escape to other states as a result of the sheriff.
However, the two who are not able to get into regular business after all repeatedly robbery the bank, eventually .....

Music in this movie was wonderful. The music of the scene when cycling a bicycle in the garden is particularly good! It penetrates into my heart.
