forty years in the past as a Graduate scholar I wrote a ebook approximately Spaghetti Westerns, known as 10,000 how one can Die. it is an embarrassing tome whilst i glance at it now: filled with half-assed semiotics and different attenuated educational nonsense. within the intervening interval, i've got had the fascinating event of being a movie director. So now, while I watch those movies, i am taking a look at them from a unique standpoint. a qualified standpoint maybe...I'm puzzling over what the filmmakers meant, how they did that shot, how the director felt whilst his movie was once recut via the studio and he used to be creatively and financially screwed. 10,000 how you can Die is a completely new booklet approximately an under-studied topic, the Spaghetti Western, from a director's POV. not just have those movies stood the try out of time; a few of them are very excessive artwork. - Alex Cox
