The age of the spaghetti western has passed but it’s influence remains steadfast. It will always hold a sacred place in the history of cinema regardless if you’re aware of it or not. Everything from the morally grey protagonists to the alluring soundtracks from composer Ennio Morricone, it was truly an experience that had never been seen before. Modern directors have taken blatant influence from the genre, especially Quinten Tarantino. His style builds directly off of the work of Sergio Leone (The father of the genre). His film “Django Unchained” was the only film in the last forty years that I even considered to be a spaghetti western….until now.
The True Fiction Pictures team has spent the past six months creating what we consider to be a revival of the genre. It is a character driven epic and a dark comedy. It is a refreshing experience that will create a culture within its audience. The story contains two interconnected narratives that climax in a thrilling third act conclusion. The twist at the end of this story is an effective and satisfying culmination that will conjure a significant emotional response from our audience. It is a unique odyssey into the concepts of freedom, friendship, betrayal, and vengeance.
