WILD BILL is an accomplished impersonation of a ruminative, first-person movie. It follows its hero into opium dens, relives his killings, soaks us in his losses. The aging protagonist has been striking heroic gunfighter poses for so long that even he doesn't know what's really in his head – he's trapped by his own legend, forced to play his part until the past catches up with him.
David Edelstein, Slate, 17 Sept 1996
