This is the first of several "spaghetti Westerns" that chronicle the adventures of superhero Django (Franco Nero). Django arrives in a Mexican town dragging a coffin and is immediately caught in the middle of two warring factions: Yankee KKK members and Mexican gangsters. Lots of violence, especially after Django opens the coffin and takes out his Gatling gun.
|The Scarlet Letter 1972 N/R, 90 min.|
Genre: Foreign / Drama
Director: Wim Wenders
Cast: Senta Berger, Lou Castel, Hans Christian Blech, Yella Rottlander, Yelena Samarina, William Layton, Rudiger Vogler, Tito Garcia, Jose Villasante, Alfredo Mayo, Angel Alvarez, Laura Currie, Lorenzo Robledo, Rafael Albaicin, Jose Vivo
This is a good Wim Wenders rendition of the Nathaniel Hawthorne classic tale. Wenders' characterization of the early immigrants' biases and customs is interesting, and the acting is likewise good. It tells the story of Hester Prynne (Senta Berger) who is disgraced after having a sexual encounter and must wear the letter "A" on her blouse, and of the Reverend (Lou Castel) living with his indiscretion but sworn to secrecy by Hester.
|The Woman with Red Boots 1974 N/R, 92 min.|
Genre: Foreign / Comedy
Director: Juan Luis Bunuel
Cast: Catherine Deneuve, Fernando Rey, Adalberto Maria Merli, Jacques Weber, Jose Sacristan, Laura Betti, Emma Cohen, Angel Alvarez, Pilar Torres
Francoise (Catherine Deneuve), a popular writer, meets the rich, elderly Perrot (Fernando Rey). Perrot is not a fan of the arts, nor, for that matter, does he care much for women. When he starts to meddle into her affairs, he finds out that there is more to Francoise that he realized. An at-times confusing comedy/drama. The director is the son of the well-known Luis Bunuel.
