Considered to be the best western by many. I don't know that I have an opinion on that, but The Seachers does tackle some serious topics and Ford's camera work here is about as beautiful as it gets.

One of the worst movies I've ever seen. Racist as fuck, and starring the most overrated actor of all time.
Critics are trying to save the film by selecting to the lists and talking about its influence. This is disgusting. The film is so good on technical levels but has a mediocre script and its racist as fuck. Overreading does not change the reality of the film.
Pretty standard western here. A nice watch to pass the time but it is pretty dull and, yeah, it's an understatement saying aspects of the film hasn't aged the best.
