That was a terrific read! Cox really knows his stuff.

I am a bit like this on the actual films.

I get them and usually do not watch for a few months!

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.

2009 UPDATE
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

You live in London and The Rev lives near Bratford…I can not think of any better reason than that to visit these places…the SW seasons would be an addded bonus…or more like Almeria…a ‘got to be done’


(Yodlaf Peterson) #14

I reckon we should all meet up for some of these events


(Tigrero) #15

Too bloody right Yod. Perhaps we should do an annual event.


(Garko Forever) #16

Wow, Phil… And there we were talking about Alex Cox in a thread just yesterday! Man, what I wouldn’t give to be able to attend one of these events here in the US that was closer than New York (still over 1,000 miles from me!).


(Phil H) #17

Well, there’s a whole year to save up for it. I’ve been to two events like this in the past two years. One in Venice and one in Almeria. And I can heartily recommend them. Two of the best weekends of my life.


(Romaine Fielding) #18

Well, I missed Almeria. So I better come to this. I’d love to see Spaghettis on a big screen with a big audience. AND, I’ve never been to London.

Don’t forget the Bradford connection - my house is open to all !

I saw on another forum that the newly extended version of THE GOOD,THE BAD & THE UGLY will be shown around selected UK cinema’s in August. :smiley:

I can’t wait for Cox’s new book and i glad he’s opted for the chronological approach.
