A seriously fun neo-Western backed by a killer, needle-drop soundtrack and packed with charisma from top to bottom, THE HARDER THEY FALL really deserves to be seen on the big screen. Writer/director Jeymes Samuel elevates the relatively straightforward anti-hero revenge plot by basing most of his characters on colorful, real-life figures from the American West – all of whom happen to have been Black.
“An exciting mess of a movie, lit as if shining the frontier sun through a prism, Jeymes Samuel’s bold, kinetic all-Black Western ‘The Harder They Fall’ is a must-see.” – Combustible Celluloid
