    The Western was America’s bedrock mythology – and greatest movie genre – for the first 70 years
    of film history. But, during a tumultuous period in the late 1960s and early 1970s, the “revisionist”
    Western took up a fiercely critical argument with the past: In the disillusioned age of the counterculture
    and Vietnam, you could no longer distinguish heroes from villains by the color of their hats. Movie
    critic Robert Horton will led a discussion asking how movies reflect the history and culture of their
    times. Because of the dramatic changes seen in Westerns, the genre forces us to look critically at our
    own myths. Why do we need the clarity of “good guys” and “bad guys” at certain times? Why do we
    sometimes embrace a more ambiguous view of human nature? How do these movies challenge our way
    of thinking – and what happens to us when a movie forces us to question our long-cherished beliefs?
