Just watched the remake of 3:10 to Yuma, which is a very good western. One thing that’s nice is the ending. A lesser movie would have been more talky, with the characters either stating their motives openly or some hillbilly in a hat saying to the “what happened?” kid, “Well, son, I reckon he just thought…”
The movie is well-written and well-acted enough that it can have a dramatic and unexpected ending without any explanations necessary.
I hope one day to be able to write scenes that subtle.
