All Westerns are derivative of crime films- name me one Western that doesn't have crime in it. NCFOM is in some backwater part of Texas/Mexico. How is that not Western. Yes it's more modern and subverts the genre by not having the "goodies" win but it has all the western tropes.I don't really consider NCFOM a Western; it's a crime film with Western elements.
Likewise with Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid; allthough that is a lot more close to a Western. I feel like it's a crime film set in the old West.
Btw my second favourite western is Brokeback Mountain.
