The Grey Fox

Dir: Philip Boursos, 1983 (9.0*)
A beautiful, small western about the last known train robber in North America. Richard Farnsworth is perfect as Bill Miner, who does time for stagecoach robbing, and when released so much time has passed that the stagecoaches have been replace by train, so he starts robbing those. This is a small but excellent indie film, based on a true story, even has a good romance (Jackie Burroughs?), and put longtime character actor Farnsworth on the map.

This is our new template: ProBlogger.

These are the individual film reviews of what I'm considering the best 1000 dvds available, whether they are films, miniseries, or live concerts. Rather than rush out all 1000 at once, I'm doing them over time to allow inclusion of new releases - in fact, 2008 has the most of any year so far, 30 titles in all; that was a very good year for films, one of the best ever.
