==============================================

“She will not thank you for making her a widow, honour or no.”
“Perhaps you’d like to wager a sum for her maintenance.”
“Well, if it will help you die any the easier, I’ll lay twenty guineas for her.”
“Fifty would go further.”
“By God, you have a style to you, MacGregor! I like that!”


This movie is better than I remember it from the theatres. I guess I was too young to appreciate it. I guess I was also underage, for the script is among the most salacious I have ever seen and heard (including a rape scene as graphic as they come), but in the good old days kids enjoyed more freedom than today. Anyway, this is a fine story beautifully shot on location. I confess I find the treeless Highlands peculiarly depressing, but that’s not to say the landscape is devoid of beauty. And there is always a loch nearby in which to sink what used to be a man a short while ago. The script is nicely crafted and racy indeed, and I can’t complain of Caton-Jones in the catbird seat. But the acting really makes this movie special.

Liam Neeson looks magnificent, all six feet four of him, in Scotch rags, and he plays the hell out of Robert Roy MacGregor, a Robin Hood made in Scotland and a man of honour (“a man’s gift to himself” indeed). He sure is more than a “sheep shagger”. Pity he is not very bright. He should have known that when you borrow a thousand pounds, note or coin, you carry the stuff personally. He should have known, too, that your enemies don’t necessarily share your ideas of honour. But there would have been no movie then, of course. There is, moreover, something perceptive in Rob’s idea of honour, something moving in his realisation when he has gone too far for it, and something inspiring in his no-nonsense treatment of authority:

“He will kill you, MacGregor. I would lose money if I wagered other.”
“Your Lordship has my permission to profit what way he may.”

“You owe me!”
“I owe you money. Nothing more. What you have asked is as below me as it should be beneath Your Lordship.”

[...]
“You are damned, MacGregor. Damned to hell!”
“Come, Your Lordship, leave the devil some work. You’ve done enough for one day.”


Jessica Lange is too old for Mary, but otherwise perfect for the role. May we all, poor male creatures, have such mature lass (if you excuse the oxymoron) at our side when we are hunted. Watch out for Mary’s scenes with Killearn and Argyll. John Hurt and Brian Cox make for a couple of the most detestable villains you could possibly imagine. You must hate the characters as much as you must admire the acting. Neither Hurt nor Cox is anything short of magnificent. Tim Roth all but steals the movie as that foppish sadist Cunningham. Stunning performance! This is camp raised to the level of fine art. And yet, for all of his ridiculous mannerisms, this “bastard abroad” is a scary chap. Roth never lets you forget that.

The final swordfight still thrills and chills quarter of a century later, as does the strangling stunt on the bridge, the murder of MacDonald and so much else in this mightily entertaining movie. Besides, it does make you, or at any rate me (now, not as a kid), think about what makes a man tick, all kinds of them from men of honour like Rob Roy to men of dishonour like Cunningham. I conclude with a few of the most deliciously dirty bits from the dialogue. Enjoy, and enlarge your vocabulary of poetic double entendres:

“Were you and Tam kin?”
“Near enough. I shagged his sister.”
“Likely so did Tam.”

“So, Mr. Cunningham, what are these principle sins that distress your mother? Dice? Drink? Or are you a buggerer of boys?”
“It is years, Your Grace, since I buggered a boy... And in my own defence, I must add, I thought him a girl at the moment of entry.”
“Do you hear that, Will? Young Cunningham here was unable to tell arse from quim. What say you to that?”

“Great men, such as yourself, draw rumours as shite draws flies.”
“You are the shite, Montrose, and the flies upon it!”

“And likely you’ll slip down in the night when the mood takes you. Or will you just find yourself a sheep to comfort you?”
“Aye, well, if I do, it will be one that doesn’t bleat so bitter.”

“Think of yourself a scabbard, Mistress McGregor, and I the sword. And a fine fit you were, too.”

“Our poor queen cannot find the time to die in peace. I fear she may pass over and leave the matter unresolved.”
“Would that she had seen a child of hers live to comfort the kingdom.”
“Aye. One might have hoped that a field so regularly ploughed might have yielded one good crop. In truth, I have seen healthier graveyards than that woman’s womb.”
