A gentle little fable about the mechanization of the west and its effects on a small-time outlaw (Dennis Hopper). Director James Frawley neatly revitalizes the classic townspeople-gunfighter-wilderness formula and adds just enough bizarre and wry touches to keep up with 70s revisionist attitudes regarding the movie western. Funny at times, always modest, the film makes its comments on industrialization, civilization, and even modern urban sexual mores in a relaxed way—and Kid Blue even escapes on mad preacher/inventor Peter Boyle's “aerocycle” (that's really riding off into the sunset). Excellent support from Warren Oates (as always) and Ben Johnson (1973).
Sorry there are no upcoming showtimes for Kid Blue
