The Great Train Robbery (1903)

The Great Train Robbery (1903) is a fast, exciting, single-reel western that ends with a memorable burst of gunfire, directed straight at the audience. Or does it? I got stuck into that question for the endings column in the February 2016 issue of Sight & Sound magazine. You can read that piece online here. For the same issue, I previewed a new season of 1940s cinema and reviewed a new Blu-ray edition of The Birth of a Nation.
