Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Jun 25th at 6p for Once Upon a Time in the West at the Brattle Theatre. Look for Dan wearing a multicolored shirt in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
This film has it all: Dario Argento, Bernardo Bertolucci, and Leone co-wrote it; Henry Fonda and Charles Bronson are cast against type with Ford playing the vilian; and, an amazing score by Ennio Morricone. Although a financial flop when originally released, it is now considered one of the best Westerns ever made.
