This is the last film of the Best of the West series that has been playing at the Garneau. Who wishes to join me?
From the website: After coming upon a horse carriage filled with dead bodies, a nameless gunslinger (Clint Eastwood) and a wanted outlaw learn of a potential fortune hidden in a cemetery from the carnage’s sole survivor before he passes. The men form an uneasy alliance to track down the gold before a bounty hunter (Lee Van Cleef) beats them to it. One of the most beloved Westerns of all time, Sergio Leone made himself and Clint Eastwood a star by bringing a ruthless European sensibility to his favourite American movie myth. With its virtuoso cinematography and iconic score, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly came to both change and define the genre, proving that the Western is so foundational to movie making, that you don’t need to be American or in America to make one of the best.
Meetup time is 6:45pm in the main lobby of the Garneau. I'll be near the couches. I'll hold my usual bouquet of artificial flowers so that you can spot me easily.
If anyone is interested in a post-film coffee and discussion, we can certainly head out afterwards for that, too.
Hope to see you then!
