"The Kentukian"

The west as we have never seen it before dominates this movie.
How a simple man survives in a wilderness through heartache and
lonliness. Every item he uses is not wasted in case there might
not be another one along shortly.
The world is based on a limited knowledge of literature and study
and mainly from the bible.
Heathans abound in this world for hard living.
Kentucky is a place of using the land and animals . Ambition or drive
has no place here .
Burt Lancaster appitomises the self-made man. It is a snap shot
of pre - multi- culture u.sa.
At times, it seems the skies are the only company and the Indians
dominate .
It takes a man time to step back to see the perspective in this world.

    I see you've posted this as a DVD review, but you've not mentioned the DVD. Are there any extras? If so, what are they and are they any good? If you add to this, or if you change it to be posted as a "Film Only" review, which can be done by accessing "edit review" above the review and changing the drop down menu under the "Which format are you reviewing?" question at the bottom, please let me know and I'll re-rate.

    Good review but could do with some more info to gain higher ratings. Take a look at other reviews to get an idea of the level of info that is needed to gain higher ratings. x
