Only someone who condones abusing women could like this. The actresses in Hollywood should expand their protest of the casting couch to not making this trash. Hug your wife and daughter, more satisfying than watching this!

A very dark movie. Guy Pearce plays a very twisted character. Set in a western setting but not a real western movie.
I thought the acting was good.
If you're a special snowflake, avoid this movie, you may get so triggered you'll go into a seizure.

If you are a sick twisted misogynist, there is a chance that you might think this is empowering for women. (One character points out to the 13 year old being raped by her father that the only people telling you to turn the other cheek are the ones in power.) But this is not empowering for women. It is not uplifting. On the other hand, if you really enjoy watching women being whipped, beaten, raped, molested by their fathers, tortured, humiliated in public and willing to self mutilate to escape their circumstances,you'll probably like this. I obviously hated it.

I gave up after 35 mins. hence no stars. Very scenic though, but then it was filmed in Germany.

Very dark. All the way through.

I usually like just about anything with Guy Pearce but this was the exception. It just seemed to muddle along. The was no economic story telling and a confused genre thing going on. I didn't know whether I was supposed to be watching a story about a strong woman in the brutal west or a horror slasher flick with an evil preacher as the the bad guy; then it turned into a semi-adult entertainment.
I just couldn't get into this one.

Dark and disturbing movie, but very well acted, very well written. The Christian right will down vote this movie - it's not a message they want to hear about their people of the cloth.

This film was demented. Its themes were sadistic and morally twisted beyond measure: incest, mental cruelty, gory partial birth abortion (they couldn't stop with a human one but had to do it to animals too), mutilation, whipping, burning, and a predatory monster who prays in the name of Jesus, twisting Bible verses out of context to justify his over the top, psychopathic cravings. It never stops. There is no respite, there are no redeeming qualities. My recommendation is to leave this one alone.

This movie is bound to have a very polarized audience. It's also one of those movies that you will love it and hate it at the same time too! It tells a story where one man in the name of God is doing a horrible things. Plot line is very interesting as well, acting is superb, photography amazing, but execution was below par. Personally I liked it, but I wish it was more logical in execution.
