A trio of gunslingers (Jack Nicholson, Warren Oates, Will Hutchins) gets hired by a mysterious woman (Millie Perkins) for a sojourn in the desert on a vengeance manhunt, but no one's motives are quite what they appear, in Monte Hellman's cult favorite existentialist western "The Shooting." Then, in Hellman's consecutively shot oater "Ride in the Whirlwind," three cowpunchers (Nicholson, Cameron Mitchell, Tom Filer) have to ride for their lives when a vigilante group mistakes them for members of a stage-robbing gang. Perkins, Harry Dean Stanton co-star; co-written by Nicholson. 163 min. total. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Uncompressed mono; Subtitles: English (SDH); audio commentary; interviews; more.
