Quigley Down Under (1990)
A western directed by Simon Wincer.
A cowboy from America goes to Australia on a job as a sharp-shooter. Crazy Cora latches onto him immediately and when he gets to the job, the boss quickly becomes his enemy and the boss' enemy, his friend.
I like westerns and this film is from a good year. It's just new enough to be easy to watch, but old enough to retain some quality in plot and characters. Speaking of characters, Quigley, Cora and the boss are very well done. The setting of the Aboriginal encampment was awesome too. There wasn't much that I didn't like about this film, so I'm rating it good.
