Film Review - The Dressmaker

DRESSMAKER 1

While a remake of “The Magnificent Seven” rumbles through theaters, “The Dressmaker” proves itself to be a superior western in western in every way. It’s a clever picture (an adaptation of a Rosalie Ham novel) that imagines small town hostilities as genre entanglements, with Kate Winslet starring as most unusual gunslinger, wielding thread and fabric instead of cold steel. While “The Dressmaker” contains a restless, borderline crazed Australian energy, director Jocelyn Moorhouse manages the insanity with skill, conjuring a beguiling mystery with rich characterization, dark humor, and a cheeky love for Leone-esque theatrics while sorting through domestic problems. It’s a strange film, but memorably so. Read the rest at Blu-ray.com
