The three have their sights set on returning to Lago to wreak havoc and take care of some unfinished business.

By the early 70s, actor Clint Eastwood's career had gone from being a
mere extra to a well-known Hollywood star. Thanks to the success of
Sergio Leone's immortal Westerns, Eastwood was noticed and soon he
began to work in very good projects, with great results. Despite being
a respected actor, nobody could have imagined that his talent as
director was even superior to his acting skills, and after a fairly
good debut in 1971 (the thriller "Play Misty for Me"), he crafted his
first masterpiece in 1973 as a tribute to his own artistic mentors: the
haunting western "High Plains Drifter".
"High Plains Drifter" is the story of a small mining town named "Lago"
which is constantly troubled by outlaws and gunfighters. One day a
stranger (Clint Eastwood) comes to town, and manages to kill three of
those outlaws, gaining instant recognition and the offer of having
whatever he wants from the town if he gets rid of the rest of the gang.
He accepts but the town doesn't know that the mysterious stranger has a
secret that will change their lives for ever.
The figure of the stranger comes to town to alter the fragile
equilibrium of their existence, and soon the town's own demons return
to haunt them. Eastwood's character is not exactly the hero we know,
but a morally ambiguous cruel man that doesn't hesitate to use and
abuse the townspeople and that clearly has an agenda of his own.
Written by Ernest Tidyman, this is a dark tale that explores the
ambiguous morality of people and the concepts of justice and revenge.
Eastwood's second directorial effort is a powerful movie that
brilliantly combines the elements of Western with those of suspense and
thriller. Due to his solid career in Westerns, Eastwood knows the
genre's characteristics and pushes them forward to create something
more, a movie beyond its genre. With brilliant camera-work, he goes
from dream sequences out of a nightmare to day sequences in Leone's
Spaghetti Western style. This is definitely a tribute to his mentors
(In fact, he included a small reference to his directors in a cemetery
The acting is remarkably good, with Eastwood himself leading the cast
with great skill and his powerful presence. His character is a lot more
complex than his "Man With No Name" and it could be said that he mixes
in one character the characteristics of the three outlaws of "The Good,
The Bad and the Ugly". The underrated Billy Curtis is great as
Mordecai, probably the only one in town who knows (and understands) the
stranger's secret. The rest of the cast is very good and even those in
small roles (such as William O'Connell as the barber) give performances
of high quality. Apparently Eastwood's talent with people was there
from the beginning.
Tidyman's story is very well-constructed, and can be seen from diverse
points of view. Every character in town is well-defined no matter how
long their screen-time is, and Eastwood makes the most of it. It's hard
to find a flaw in this movie and I really can't praise it enough. It is
a story that once that grabs you never lets you go.
"High Plains Drifter" is a must-see, not only for Western fans, it is a
powerful story that is more than what it seems. Great camera-work,
haunting images, terrific script, superb acting, all pieces fit to
create Clint Eastwood's first masterpiece. This dark western sets the
path of Eastwood's career as a director and one can see why is he one
of the best directors alive. 10/10
