High Plains Drifter Movie ReviewAs a director, Eastwood is not as good as he seems to think he is. As an actor, he is probably better than he allows himself to be.
Richard Schickel-TIME Magazine
Eastwood's second directorial effort is mechanically stylish.
This was supposed to be Eastwood's fond adieu to the worlds of Sergio Leone and Don Siegel; and indeed he cuts the operatic excess of the former with the punchy economy of the latter.
Derek Adams-Time Out
Part ghost story, part revenge Western, more than a little silly, and often quite entertaining in a way that may make you wonder if you have lost your good sense.
Vincent Canby-New York Times
Clint Eastwood's first Western as director is rather fascinating due to its quasi-supernatural component.
Jeffrey M. Anderson-Combustible Celluloid
One of the best Westerns of the 1970s.
-TV Guide's Movie Guide
Whatever the reasoning, it is a gripping work, harsh and ahead of its time.
Eastwood registers strongly as actor and director of this revenge Western (yet another critique of High Noon), with a style that's influenced by his mentors, the economic efficiency of Don Siegel with touches of Sergio Leone's Spaghetti Westerns
Clint Eastwood is the ultimate thinking man's cinematic killing machine.
Brad Laidman-Film Threat
Savory Eastwood western.
Clint Eastwood's second film as a director -- and his first western -- is a minor classic.
Clint's a supernatural amoral mythical hero (of the pulp novel kind), bent on cruelty and getting revenge for a past misdeed.
Dennis Schwartz-Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Paint the town red, Clint. It's your strangest and one of your best westerns.
Steve Crum-Kansas City Kansan
High Plains Drifter will make an excellent double bill along with Eastwood's other post-modern Western, the 1992 Unforgiven.
James O'Ehley-Movie Gurus
There's some nice action here, and the whole thing is cloaked in an archetypal spookiness that makes High Plains Drifter work not only as a 'man with no name' Western but also as something a little deeper.
Dark, bloody, and uncompromising; the ultimate deconstruction of the Western genre.
