Barbarosa is a western starring the unlikely screen team of Willie Nelson and Gary Busey. Nelson is an outlaw, Busey his country-bumpkin buddy. They decide to ride together, since both are on the run from separate family feuds. Directed by Australian filmmaker Fred Schepisi, the screenplay for Barbarosa was written by William D. Wittliff who would later gain acclaim for his adaptation of Larry McMurtry's Lonesome Dove. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Schepisi's Western is an underestimated film, boasting strong performances from Willie Nelson and Gary Busey"
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Schepisi doesn't have time to show off; Despite the opportunity for some beautiful widescreen vistas, he doesn't use them as a crutch or a cheap conduit for a scene transition without a proper segue. [Well, other than Busey's unbelievably toothy grin.]"
‑ Adam Lippe, Examiner.com
"Barbarosa comes along just when we thought Westerns were extinct: this gritty mongrel saga ought to satisfy all sagebrush devotees."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
