Spotted this on another board from Alex Cox's website:

And - if all goes well - in June 2009 I'll curate a season of Spaghetti Westerns at the NFT in London, the National Media Museum in Bradford, and in New York: not the Eastwood/Leone trilogy, which has been done to death, but the really good stuff: Questi, Corbucci, Sollima, Petroni, Castellari.

Cool. That'd certainly be worth a trip to London

Man, I`d love to get over there...who knows, it`s not out of the question. It`s worth adding this, also from Cox`s site:


2009 UPDATE
I'm half way through the revision of my old Spaghetti Western tract, which I've retitled MASSACRE TIME - to differentiate it from this new chronological history. The new book will have - at Kamera Books' insistance - the old title, 10,000 WAYS TO DIE, but it's completely different from the previous: a chronological history, beginning with Corbucci's RED PASTURES in 1963, and ending in the eighties with the last-gasp 3D Spaghetti, COMIN' AT YA!


I`m looking forward to this book.

Would be awesome to see some Corbucci, Questi, Sollima, Petroni SWs on the big screen.  :-X

I`m looking forward to this book.

Same here.  I like how Cox writes and talks SWs.  The man clearly has love for them.

Oooh NY...I hope so. We don't get much in the way of revivals.

Crosses fingers that both shows go through.

Thanks Martin
