From Monday 2 April – Monday 30 April, BFI Southbank will celebrate one of the undisputed masters of cinema, Sergio Leone. While they may not have been the first spaghetti westerns, Leone's Dollars trilogy of A Fistful of Dollars (1964), For a Few Dollars More (1965) and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966) are certainly the best known – they paved the way for Clint Eastwood to break Europe and for Leone to have an enduring influence on cinema. As part of the season, A Fistful of Dollars will screen on extended run from Friday 13 April, when it is re-released in selected cinemas by Park Circus.
Schedule of events for Friday April 27, 2018:
During the Mexican Revolution in 1913, a bandit and a fugitive British explosives expert reluctantly end up working together in a tale that Leone used to reflect the political instability and violence rocking Italy at the time. The growing trust between the two men is given more time to develop than in Leone’s other films, and though often overshadowed by his previous work, his final western is a rarely seen treat.
FRI 27, APR, 18:30 “A Fistful of Dynamite” (Duck You Sucker)
