Dead for a Dollar

A bounty hunter faces off with his old enemy, a gambler turned outlaw.


Why watch this film?

Directed by veteran of the Western and action cinema, Walter Hill (Revenge, Deadwood), Dead for a Dollar (Muerto por un dólar) is an austere and classic Western in its narrative. The story follows a bounty hunter veteran who must cross into Mexico to save the wife of a millionaire, but soon discovers that she is actually running from him and he must decide whether to protect her or return her. At times the budget shortages are noticeable, but its narrative explores a historically ungenerous era –and genre– with women and people of color. That, plus good performances by Willem Dafoe (The Lighthouse), Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) and Christoph Watz (Inglourious Basterds) make it worth a chance.
