‘Very few artists have tackled the question of masculinity in anything like an accessible way. Cate Elwes’ Gunfighters is an exception. The tape is cut so that we see the boys’ tenderness and vulnerability before they flip into parody violence. We are left with their fantasy world, hermetic and complete, as well as having questions about its provenance raised in our own minds.’ – John Dovey
