"While the events of this story are fictional…These. People. Existed."

Jeymes Samuel's Black cowboy fantasy is a stylized, violent spectacle that redefines the prominence of African Americans in the wild west. To that end, he fills the screen with characters whose eccentricity, coolness and layered psychology nearly render the plot superfluous. Jonathan Majors and Idris Elba play real-life gang leaders Nat Love and Rufus Buck;  Zazie Beetz (Stagecoach Mary) and Regina King are their the right-hands; LaKeith Stanfield is Cherokee Bill and Danielle Deadwyler is the gender-fluid Cuffee, a quick-drawing bodyguard whose slender frame proves deceptive in its brutal ability. 

And though Samuel delights in such status reversal, his film isn't concerned with addressing any racial issues. Rather, he's here for the spectacle, the exaggerated, modernised dialogue, the violent, expertly crafted set-pieces and a musical score that'd make Tarantino weep with pride; Jay-Z served as the film's producer. The result is an invigorating tale, breathing new life into a genre that so seldom gets the chance to ride the cinema screens in the manner it used to. D: Jeymes Samuel, US, 2021, CC
