Critic Reviews of "High Plains Drifter"TIME MagazineOctober 26, 2008
As a director, Eastwood is not as good as he seems to think he is. As an actor, he is probably better than he allows himself to be.VarietyMay 21, 2008
Eastwood's second directorial effort is mechanically stylish.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
This was supposed to be Eastwood's fond adieu to the worlds of Sergio Leone and Don Siegel; and indeed he cuts the operatic excess of the former with the punchy economy of the latter.New York TimesMay 10, 2005
Part ghost story, part revenge Western, more than a little silly, and often quite entertaining in a way that may make you wonder if you have lost your good sense.Blu-ray.comNovember 23, 2013
Mysterious, sporadically comical, and classically Eastwood, High Plains Drifter is a wholly satisfying revenge saga that's askew enough to surprise as it exercises known elements.The DissolveOctober 28, 2013
Eastwood holds fast to the rebel spirit of the spaghetti Westerns and revisionist "New Hollywood" Westerns of the previous decade, but packages it in a film that's slicker and more mainstream-friendly.Combustible CelluloidJuly 03, 2009
Clint Eastwood's first Western as director is rather fascinating due to its quasi-supernatural component.TV GuideOctober 26, 2008
One of the best Westerns of the 1970s.Film4October 26, 2008
Whatever the reasoning, it is a gripping work, harsh and ahead of its time.EmanuelLevy.ComApril 13, 2007
Eastwood registers strongly as actor and director of this revenge Western (yet another critique of High Noon), with a style that's influenced by his mentors, the economic efficiency of Don Siegel with touches of Sergio Leone's Spaghetti WesternsFilm ThreatDecember 06, 2005
Clint Eastwood is the ultimate thinking man's cinematic killing machine.
