Oh My!) and the beautiful pictures of San Francisco reflect and augment the characters' emotions and situation wonderfully.

(br) wrote: This film is impressive, an entire film shot in one take, 96 minutes with no cuts or edits Too bad the movie is incredibly boring, its literally just walking around a museum with a guide with nothing too amazing to keep your attention. The blocking and pre-production can be commended, but its still a very uninteresting gimmick film that will be known more for its one shot take than actual content.

This film is every bit as great as the films that are frequently cited as the best that Kirk Douglas starred in, such as Paths of Glory or Ace In the Hole. Which is to say that it deserves to be considered one of the greatest films ever made. I've never seen a film that so brilliant combines a western with an existential noir drama, prison escape movie, and an action thriller! The film flows beautifully, and even during it's more outlandish moments feels completely plausible. Kirk Douglas's performance is one of the best I've seen in a film. The black and white cinematography is to die for, and the shots are creative. "Lonely are the Brave" (Douglas wanted it to be titled "The Last Cowboy," which is more appropriate) is a thrilling film that manages to say a lot on loneliness, modernization, friendship, love, family, individualism, the west, and societal duty. If that isn't what makes a brilliant film I don't know what does.

During the evening she told him that her Dad met Quentin Tarantino at a movie theater in L.A. for a showing of "Inglorious Basterds". After introductions Taratino was thrilled to meet Ellison. He told him that he loved "Don't Go in the House" and that he owned a 16mm print of the film at his house.
