(Walter Hill, 1995).
Brawny and sinewed, couch completely in flashback (and flashbacks within flashbacks), Wild Bill is a movie of big weather, thunderous fisticuffs, deafening shoot-outs, and a fabulous, unapologetically opaque wild man performance by Jeff Bridges. The movie slips into a groggy stupor before the end, but, on the whole, its spooky enough to justify director Walter Hills description of Deadwood as a place of prophecy and vision.
