Corben Alley Takes “Long Look Back” At The Old West
Westerns have always been one of America’s avenues for dealing with its complex past, or to try and reckon with its present. High Noon was an allegory for the Red Scare, while The Searchers can be seen, in part, as a discussion of American race relations. Corben Alley’s The Long Look Back, on the other hand, is a personal journey. The story of a reformed outlaw trying to deal with the wreckage of his past and the future he hopes to build.
Alley, a resident of Council Grove, has been working on The Long Look Back for several years now. Originally conceived as a feature film, Corben opted to turn it into a short film when crowd funding efforts came up short.
