Don't Come Knocking

(Germany/France/Great Britain/USA, 2005, 123 minutes)

A western star abandons a location shoot midway through the film to go in search of himself. Dazzlingly shot, melancholy moodpiece that treads old territory for both its writer-star and director; parts of the script are seriously ill-judged but somehow don't really hinder the film's amiable, ambling tone.
