True Grit Has...True Grit

I have to admit I’ve never read the book, and I haven’t seen the original film, so I have no basis of comparison to begin with when it comes to the film True Grit. Normally I don’t even like Westerns. I don’t like reliving the misogyny, rape, violence, and stereotypes against indigenous peoples that frankly still exist today, but in thankfully somewhat smaller doses. I’m also not a fan of dust, which seems to bathe everything in such movies.
