UPDATE: REVIEW OF THE BOOK AVAILABLE HERE: http://www.spaghetti-western.net/index.php/10%2C000_Ways_To_Die_Book_Review
This is from Alex’s website.
The book should be an interesting addition to others available on the subject. The season of films at the NFT should be a great reason for anyone to make a trip to London. I’ll keep everyone posted as it develops.
I’m half way through the revision of my old Spaghetti Western tract, which I’ve retitled MASSACRE TIME - to differentiate it from this new chronological history. The new book will have - at Kamera Books’ insistance - the old title, 10,000 WAYS TO DIE, but it’s completely different from the previous: a chronological history, beginning with Corbucci’s RED PASTURES in 1963, and ending in the eighties with the last-gasp 3D Spaghetti, COMIN’ AT YA!
And - if all goes well - in June 2009 I’ll curate a season of Spaghetti Westerns at the NFT in London, the National Media Museum in Bradford, and in New York: not the Eastwood/Leone trilogy, which has been done to death, but the really good stuff: Questi, Corbucci, Sollima, Petroni, Castellari.
More details to follow. 2008.6.30
