On his journey southward toward Mexico, Eastwood encounters a number of individuals, portrayed by a varied and interesting cast that includes Danny Glover, Walton Goggins, and Adam Beach. Reviews of the film thus far have noted the focus this Western puts upon very contemporary issues; post-war Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and the desire to return to a peaceful, civilian life. Here is one trailer for Diablo (2016):

Goggins, as the lethal Ezra in this story, looks set to build upon his continually impressive body of work, the most recent of which being his role in Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight (2015). This writer thought his portrayal of southern rebel Chris Mannix was a tour de force. In the following clip from Diablo, Goggins, in an exchange with Eastwood’s character, brings a simultaneous menacing yet melodic quality to words that push at what Jackson attempts to bury inside.

Produced by Space Rock Studios and filmed in Alberta, Canada, Diablo is being distributed by both Orion Pictures and Momentum Pictures. VOD platforms for the film include iTunes, VUDU, and Amazon.
