Perhaps one of the best westerns of all time, THE SEARCHERS captures the complexities of the post-civil war frontier as the meeting point of wilderness and civilization. Ethan Edwards (John Wayne), an ex-confederate soldier who believes in bullets over words, embarks on a quests to save his kidnapped niece from the Comanches. Paving the way for the Anti-hero films of the 1970s, John Wayne’s fantastic performance walks the line between heroism and madness. With phenomenal directing by John Ford, this cutting edge classic uncovers the complexity of humanity against the vibrant open landscape of middle America.
