hotdog’s pick for mid-week madness – “A Fistful of Dynamite”
mid-week always call for a “mad” movie.
I think this week calls for Sergio Leone’s “A Fistful of Dynamite” (1971). The movie stars James Coburn as the quintessential boozed-up irishman with a fetish for explosions and Rod Steiger as a mexican bandit masquerading as a greasy stand-up comic.
this film is so much fun. Steiger and Coburn are fantastic, the dialogue is hilarious, and there are smoking guns and explosions a go-go. It all feels like a big self-parodying italo western party on crack.
join the fun.
