Hombre, Movie Review by Brian Wright

Hombre, Movie Review by Brian Wright

Published by Brian Wright
Hombre is one of those movies that sneaks up on you. It starts out quietly in the Arizona badlands where John Russell (Paul Newman)—who we learn later is a white boy raised by the Apache—stealthily stalks and traps a herd of wild horses with two of his Indian compadres.

Upon reflection, the symbolism of that scene is striking: Russell shortly after outsmarting the horses into captivity is told that the white man who came to care for Russell at some point in Russell's early life (and gave Russell his name) has died. The old man has willed to John a boarding house and a gold watch... both symbolic of settling back into the white world.
