The hired hand (1971)

»If I wasn’t doing this, I’d be doing something else«

A tired drifter sets out on a futile quest for a lost past that never existed. This slow revisionist western is filled – despite its short running time – with long interludes and melancholy music, contributing strongly to the elegiac mood while also more or less necessitating the minimalistic story.

Complex, ironic, and unusually low-key. In my book.
