Critic Reviews of "The Proposition"Time OutJune 24, 2006
A beautifully shot tracker's western that brings the Fordian poles of garden and desert to bear on the bushrangers' Outback, this is also a revenge drama of substantial horror.Seattle TimesJune 09, 2006
It doesn't offer much that hasn't already been said about lawless frontier towns, bonds between outlaws or the settling of the West.Orlando SentinelJune 09, 2006
By the end, it all pays off exactly the way a hundred earlier Westerns did.Miami HeraldJune 09, 2006
In-your-face combativeness is The Proposition's power, and for those of you who value your westerns, the effect is not unlike that of The Wild Bunch or Unforgiven.Arizona RepublicJune 08, 2006
It's fitting that The Proposition is set Down Under, because in many ways, it's a reverse Western.Suite101.comSeptember 17, 2010
John Hillcoat's violence-probing Western feels as uncompromisingly bleak, royally widescreen and graphically violent as any Sam Peckinpah opus - a sunburned, grimy-nailed saga of point-blank executions and blood wrung from a cat o' nine tails.City Pages, Minneapolis/St. PaulAugust 21, 2009
What the characters have in common--the only thing they have in common, really--is the desire for community amid the well-founded expectation of imminent, violent death.ColeSmithey.comApril 19, 2009
ustralian-born singer/songwriter Nick Cave pens his second film (after "Ghosts ... Of The Civil Dead") and generates a prescient allegory about imperialism.Looking CloserAugust 22, 2007
Guy Pearce seems to have boiled himself down into some kind of Guy Pearce Concentrate. Winstone looks like he's been sculpted from the Australian wilderness around him.Eye for FilmAugust 03, 2007
a mythic exploration of the ever shifting frontier between savagery and civilisation in an unforgiving landscape.
