The Proposition is an Australian western that was rather dark and rather good. It’s got a great cast and some excellent cinematography, and while the plot stumbles occasionally it’s on the whole a rather well done movie. It’s not a feel-good film nor a stereotypical first-date flick (though I’ll gladly welcome any stories from those in either camp disputing my categorizations), but it’s a rough, violent film that’s ultimately successfully accomplished.
