      Kent Jones Film Comment Magazine Robert Mulligan was the only American filmmaker to wade into such painfully vexing and frightfully bourgeois territory, and come out with a truly great film. Oct 20, 2014 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy The Stalking Moon is a film in which (with apologies to Aristotle) the sum of its parts is greater than the whole, as a few noteworthy sequences aren't enough to rescue the overall movie. Rated: 2/4 Mar 29, 2020 Full Review Christopher Lloyd The Film Yap A well-made but cautious early attempt at a revisionist Western that seems more like a sketch for a grander, grimmer tale the filmmakers weren't ready to tell. Rated: 4/5 Jun 17, 2019 Full Review Penelope Houston The Spectator It is all sympathetic enough but low on vitality. Apr 11, 2016 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Talkative and thoughtful Western. Rated: C+ Dec 25, 2015 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member A good movie here thank you really enjoy it James Welch, Henderson, Arkansas September 27, 2023 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 09/28/23 Full Review Steve D Perhaps not worthy of this cast but it is solid. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 07/27/23 Full Review Audience Member The Stalking Moon is an underrated and rarely mentioned revisionist western, starring one of the best actors in business, Gregory Peck. Though there could easily have been developed a more imaginative ending, it's basically about realism, true characters, and a simple but still exciting plot. Often less is more, and it can be enough just to sense the conflict, feel the agony, and taste the dust and the blood. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member This film features stunning scenery, great acting, and an interesting look at Apache culture and language. It has the feel of an authentic Western. It's a little thin on plot, however. But, if you like Gregory Peck, it's worth watching. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member I think it is a classic western, inspite of what critics say. The acting by Peck, Saint, and Forrester are well done. It is a great story and beautifully filmed. The music adds to it hauntingly. Different from other westerns, deals with a rogue Apache Indian hunting these people down. Killing all in his path. Highly recommend!!! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review laurie s Good movie but I like realism. When stalking and you want to be unseen and unheard Greg, take your spurs off.
