Far West is by no standards bad. Underneath the campness and ‘comedy’ is a heart-warming story and underneath that lies a truly sad story; but I won’t go into detail so hopefully you understand what I mean. Everything works together stylistically and visually but there was something about it that didn’t work for me. For a comedy I didn’t really smile or laugh… besides the NSFW shower scene but that smile was for other reasons. Koko and Mika do provide some comic relief but for me it would’ve worked better as a drama. Anyone for a roll in the hay?
