Crocker, Keith SPAGHETTI WESTERNS - How Europe Changed the Face of Western Cinema Media- Film,
Performing Arts- Other,
Visual Arts- Other
This seminar explores how Italian filmmakers took an American genre of film-making and completely reshaped it giving the world a very different view of the old west. The Good, The Bad and the Ugly blurred the definition of good and evil. We will cover the work of Sergio Leone as well as explore the countless spin-offs as done by the Spanish, Germans, Mexicans and others. A delicious selection of DVD clips punctuate the footage used to draw examples. The casual cinema viewer will broaden their outlook and appreciate other film genres via this presentation. *NOTE* Due to the nature of the subject matter, I do insist this seminar be classified for Adults. Westerns by nature can be violent, so don't aim this program at children or pre-teens. It is meant for Adults. Thank you!
