Capital Celluloid 2016 - Day 117: Tue Apr 26

A Fistful of Dynamite (Leone, 1971): Prince Charles Cinema, 8.40pm

One of Sergio Leone's most underrated movies gets a rare (35mm) screening.

Chicago Reader review:
Sergio Leone's elliptical style and good performances from Rod Steiger and James Coburn combine to produce a vastly entertaining film (1971), also known as A Fistful of Dynamite, about the aftermath of the Mexican revolution. Coburn, a fugitive from the Irish "troubles," and Steiger, a Mexican bandit, team up to rob a bank and unwillingly become the focus of the counterrevolutionary forces. A marvelous sense of detail and spectacular effects--good fun all the way.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
