No at all a classic, but one of the best western in the last couple of years:

The Ballad of Lefty Brown (Bill Pullman as an aging sidekick of a once well known gunslinger). Pullman delivers a very strong performance, this one really suprised me.

I love this one a whole bunch, but it never seems to get mentioned much when discussing great westerns:

For those who may be interested, the Hoopla digital streaming service included with some public library memberships has a ton of old westerns from the 30s, 40s, and 50s (and more recent ones, too).

Back to the Future part III. Seriously. It's essentially a comedy western. It has heart, spirit and pluck and ends the trilogy in a satisfying way.

I haven't seen it either (Westerns are not my "go-to" genre of film) but all you need to see on that poster is "directed by Walter Hill" to know it will be good. I'll be checking it out sometime this summer as well.

Hombre, starring Paul Newman is a good one.
