3 out of 5. John Hillcoat's THE PROPOSITION expands on the Western even though it was filmed in The Outback. The landscape of Australia is brutal hell on Earth and it's characters are tied to it by their deeds. Even the innocent is guilty of something and no foul deed goes unpunished by man or element. All this comes across in a fairly poetic manner with nods to Peckinpah other directors of great Westerns.
