    Another fun one (though not as dark) from Alex de la Iglesia.

    A funny, warm homage to the glory days of spaghetti westerns.

    A family feud is resolved through a very dramatic, western style manner. Art direction was pretty good, and so was the overall acting. A pretty decent comedy.

    A film thats very hit and miss. but anyone whos into the spagetti westerns wil see something. set in a spanish town, where supposedly a lot of them were made, and a stuntman of the time helping run the town as a tourist atraction. the film is at times stylish, and many references to the genre, with some great namechecks. lots of flaws, and a very weird scene with a hooker seducing a very young kid with him touching her breasts fit uncomfortably. so overall a curious watch.

    A bizarre social satire and tribute to the lost tradition of the Spaghetti Western, set in the Spanish desert and on the sets where these low-budget westerns were actually filmed during the 1960s and early 70s (a must-see for Spaghetti Western aficionados); a truly brilliant idea in the hands of a maverick director, yet somehow, something was lacking throughout the film…
