slag is an unknown quantity at this point

All those mentioned by you and Duck are on my top Westerns list ... but I would also include The Searchers and High Plains Drifter ... and, although it's a lame love story, the shootout at the end of Open Range is fucking outstanding.

Appaloosa is also pretty damn good also.

Another personal observation: Although Tombstone beats Wyatt Earp for the same basic subject matter, and I prefer the Val Kilmer Doc Holliday, Dennis Quaid's Holliday in Wyatt Earp is a pisser.

EDITED TO ADD: Don't know if it qualifies as a western, but Last of the Mohicans is also fucking great.
Obscenity is the last refuge of an inarticulate motherfucker.
