Unforgiven: Deconstructing an Anti-Western

Season 4 Episode 7 | 26m 46s | Video has closed captioning.

The Clint Eastwood/David Peoples classic <em>Unforgiven</em> is deconstructed by <em>Into the West’s</em> Kirk Ellis and <em>Apaloosa’s</em> Robert Knott as they explore its gritty action, ambiguous morality, and the tried-and-true tropes of its genre. Christian Baker’s short film, <em>The Well</em>, follows suit, trailing a young Civil War soldier stationed alone on the US/Mexico.
