10,000 Ways to Die: A Director's Take on the Spaghetti by Alex Cox

By Alex Cox

forty years in the past as a Graduate scholar I wrote a e-book approximately Spaghetti Westerns, known as 10,000 how one can Die. it truly is an embarrassing tome whilst i glance at it now: choked with half-assed semiotics and different attenuated educational nonsense. within the intervening interval, i've got had the attention-grabbing event of being a movie director. So now, whilst I watch those motion pictures, i am them from a special point of view. a qualified point of view maybe...I'm pondering what the filmmakers meant, how they did that shot, how the director felt whilst his movie used to be recut via the studio and he used to be creatively and financially screwed. 10,000 how one can Die is a completely new e-book approximately an under-studied topic, the Spaghetti Western, from a director's POV. not just have those movies stood the try of time; a few of them are very excessive paintings. - Alex Cox
