Once Upon A Time In The West
NB NB NB My sources tell me that the movie starts at 8pm and will end at 11pm for anyone worried about getting home. The first hour is a talk about the film by Sir Christopher Frayling for 50 mins, followed by a 10 minute intermission.
I am going to be in Veritas at 6pm and then will go into the cinema at about 6:30. I want to get a good seat towards the front middle. I appreciate not everyone will be as keen to see this on the big screen as me!! Either meet me in Veritas, or at 6:30, or in the 'cinema' itself. I'll have my mobile on until the talk begins to help people meetup.
Currently my all time favourite movie, Sergio Leone's iconic western is introduced by Sir Christopher Frayling, so it will be interesting to see if he has a new take on this often discussed piece of movie heaven.
The opening credits are worth paying to see alone!!!. We then we have an amazing opening scene, as Charles Bronson faces off 3 strangers "And Frank?" The dialogue, perfect, plus Claudia Cardinale as widow in distress, Henry Fonda cast against type, Jason Robards. Its brilliant throughout. Absolute gold. If you haven't seen it in a while, or perhaps never, then lucky you. I shall massively look forward to seeing this on the big screen. It had a big effect on me when I first saw it as a kid, with my elder brother Joe.
