SILVERADO
1985, Sony Repertory, 133 min, USA, Dir: Lawrence Kasdan

Writer-director Lawrence Kasdan breathes new life into familiar Western motifs in this terrifically entertaining film. Kevin Kline, Scott Glenn, Kevin Costner and Danny Glover lead a great ensemble cast as cowboys who free the town of Silverado from a ruthless sheriff (Brian Dennehy) and his rancher patron. Only moderately successful at the box office, SILVERADO hit its stride in the home video market, becoming a deserving cult favorite. “A sweeping, glorious-looking Western that’s at least a full generation removed from the classic films it brings to mind.” – Janet Maslin, The New York Times.
