Hostiles (2017, dir. Scott Cooper)

An embittered US Army veteran is given the task of repatriating a dying Cheyenne chief. Handsome, sombre and occasionally po-faced Western with a straightforward message. Good performances, though not quite the epic it wants to be.

Braven (2018, dir. Lin Oeding)

A logger is caught up in a siege against drug-dealers. Somewhat contrived in its set-up, this is nevertheless a decent-enough wintry contemporary western, which sensibly focuses on snowy shootout action.
