The Searchers 4/5 (C)

So often with 'classic' films it's more a case of appreciating and admiring them than actually enjoying them. When presented to a modern audience they can seem influenceable but often appear dated and quite boring. Not the case with The Searchers. At times it does look it's age but it is still watchable throughout and it's influence on Star Wars is obvious . My only real concern was having a murdering racist as the main character and not knowing if that was a reflection of the times of the story or the times of the film.
