"blowin up things and kissin that’s what we call Drahma" Ben Browder

28 January

Well so far one professional review which likens Outlaws and Angels to Tarantino’s style in a negative way. The comments from audience members have been positive. I grew up on the gritty “splatter” westerns of the 60s and 70s and loved them despite their often disturbing imagery. I will also reserve judgement until I see the film myself we have all seen “great” movies that weren’t and “dismal” movies that became a favorite. To be in a film accepted at Sundance is a big deal in many ways. It is also an opportunity to network. Especially when directors and producers see the “real” Ben vs the scruffy, not likable character he plays in this film.  The film will be released May 25th in the US and so I will reserve judgement until I see it myself. I like that Ben took a role like this so his filmography will have such a different Ben Browder than casting agents have seen before! As a fan I understand an actor’s choices may not be what I want to see them in 😉 but I support my favorites!

UPDATE!!!!!!!!!! Variety review !!!!

    I am looking forward to this one and not only because of Ben.

    I love gritty, dirty westerns! I hope the genre gets a revival soon.

    It looks like Ben had a ball at Sundance and as you say, I bet he charmed more than a few people!

    I agree with Laura as to seeing the movie (although I’m afraid of the rape scenes).

    You couldn’t have said my thoughts more clearly: Ben taking the risks of this role which is a true character piece and from the trailer seeming to melt into it brilliantly hopefully will attract the kind of attention we think he deserves.

    He does look from the photos like he had a great time at Sundance. It must be difficult to do all those required press meets and greets and photo ops but that’s part of his job. He looked better and happier here than years ago at Cannes. I hope he had lots of luck and good meetings.
