A Bullet for the General - A Spaghetti Western on a par with best of Sergio Leone's work, A Bullet for the General (aka Quien Sabe?) is a radical and politically committed film directed by Damiano Damiani (A Genius, Two Partners And A Dupe; Amityville II: The Possession) from a brilliantly powerful screenplay by Oscar nominee Franco Solinas (co-writer of the award-winning The Battle Of Algiers).
Now fully restored from the original Italian negative materials this forthcoming DVD release from Argent Films is the longest and most complete version of A Bullet for the General available.
Special Features include anamorphic widescreen (16:9) presentation, brand new exclusive interview with director Damiano Damiani, exclusive introduction by acclaimed filmmaker Alex Cox, theatrical trailer plus Argent Westerns Trail – trailers for Argent's forthcoming western releases.
Django Kill - Generally considered to be the most violent Western ever made, Django Kill (aka If You Live, Shoot!) is a surreal, gothic vision of indubitable pedigree. Directed by Fellini associate Giulio Questi (director of Death Laid An Egg and assistant director of La Dolce Vita), the film was co-written and edited by Bernardo Bertolucci's regular writing partner and editor Franco Arcali (Last Tango In Paris; 1900; also the co-writer of Sergio Leone's Once Upon A Time In America and Michelangelo Antonioni's editing collaborator on Zabriskie Point) and stars Tomas Milian (Traffic; The Yards; Amistad), Ray Lovelock (The Living Dead At The Manchester Morgue; Fidder On The Roof) and Piero Lulli (My Name Is Nobody).
Now fully restored from the original Italian negative materials Django Kill is being released on DVD by Argent Films in the most complete version of the film available, including, for the first time, two graphically violent scenes never before seen in the UK.
Special Features include anamorphic widescreen (16:9) presentation, brand new exclusive interviews with director Giulio Questi and star Ray Lovelock, exclusive introduction by acclaimed filmmaker Alex Cox, theatrical trailer plus Argent Westerns Trail – trailers for Argent's forthcoming western releases.
