10,000 Ways to Die: A Director's Take on the Spaghetti Western

by

10,000 Ways to Die: A Director's Take on the Spaghetti Western Cover

 

Review-A-Day

"Cox's critical writings here are relaxed and conversational (even in his footnotes), and free from unnecessary jargon or posturing. What's appealing is that he contextualizes the films within the conventions of the genre, not in the larger scheme of cinema and its aesthetics. And Cox is not afraid to dissect what is good, bad, and ugly about a given film." Gerry Donaghy, Powells.com (read the entire Powells.com review)
