Ravenous is an overlooked film from 1999. On its release it was met with critical derision, but in hindsight it is plain to see it’s actually something of an oddball gem. Perhaps calling it a contemporary classic is a little tenuous, but then these are my picks, so tough luck. It’s also somewhat genre illusive, neither a purist Horror film nor solely a Western. However, as my first contemporary classic was a Western, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, I feel justified discussing this beautiful, hybrid of a film.
Contemporary genre classics
Films are a lot like relationships; some are good, some are bad. Fortunately, none of my relationships (thus far) have culminated with me killing anyone, unlike the central relationship in The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.
