“A Fistful of Dynamite”
Saturday, October 12th at 3 pm
Tickets only available at the door
Is it art or just a cheesy 70s ‘spaghetti Western’? Only you can decide! Whichever, this enormously fun Mexican-revolution yarn, filmed in Italy by cult-favorite Sergio Leone features a wry James Coburn as John H. Mallory, an Irish soldier of fortune with a penchant for explosives. Rod Steiger plays Juan Miranda, another mercenary who wants to utilize Mallory’s specialty to blast into a bank. When these two unlikely companeros join forces, their lawless antics blow up every Western stereotype you thought you knew!
Creative Loafing raves, “One of Leone’s best movies — and one of his looniest, which may be exactly why it’s one of the best.” 100 pesos.
