In preperation to watch and review “Appaloosa“, I took another look at the film’s trailer. Watching this trailer leads me to believe that if you’re looking for a direct adaptation of Robert Parker’s novel, look no further. Every line of dialogue uttered is directly from the book and I can place every shot down to the chapter. It’s amazing how Harris seems to have captured both the quiet, classic western aspect, the amazingly visual style, and the tongue in cheek humor of the book. I can’t wait to see the film and compare, but for now I’d say this trailer is a great start.
