Capital Celluloid 2022 — Day 223: Sat Aug 13

Django Kill (Questi, 1967) & Requiescant (Lizzani,1967):
Mildmay Club, Newington Green, London, N16, 4.30pm

Michael McGrath-Brookes of Brunel University is introducing and screening a four-day radical Spaghetti Westerns season at the Mildmay Club in Stoke Newington (full details if you scroll down here). Tonight's double-bill is shown under the banner heading of 'Acid/Surrreal'

Time Out Django Kill review:
Giulio Questi (a former associate of Fellini) and Franco Arcalli (later Bertolucci's regular writing partner) devised this dour, notoriously excessive spaghetti Western, which pushes the brutality of the genre to almost surreal ends. Milian's the double-crossed Mexican gang leader out for revenge on his former partner (Lulli). The film [has] a succession of melodramatic grotesqueries, including suffocation by molten gold, roastings on a spit, and the killing of children. Not for the squeamish.
