Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Conceals a complex world view beneath its desolate and blood-soaked landscapes."
‑ Richard Brody, New Yorker
"The Tall T has some of the best sequences in the "Ranown" series."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Boetticher unfolds this hostage scenario on bare natural prosceniums, and with stark delicacy lets the characters' personal moral codes brush against and shade into each other"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"A marvelous but bleak psychological Western."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Western gem full of trickster characters and an odd take on gender."
‑ Michael E. Grost, Classic Film and Television
