Our Next Film is "The Quick and the Dead" on Monday, July 31st!
Our western this month brings the genre up to the 1990s with our film, The Quick and the Dead . Janet Maslin, the New York Times film critic wrote at the time:
It's customary for Western townsfolk to be awestruck by a tough new gunslinger, but not over the way she looks in leather pants. However, the new kid in town in "The Quick and the Dead" is Sharon Stone, which gives the old formula a definite extra swagger. Striding into one-horse Redemption while doing her best Eastwood mad-dog squint, Ms. Stone may smoke a cigarette instead of a cheroot, but she still gets the attitude right. The look is hardboiled and the dialogue suited to a person of few words: words like "Just shine my boots."
Ms. Stone's presence nicely underscores the genre-bending tactics of Sam Raimi, the cult director ("The Evil Dead," "Army of Darkness") now doing his best to reinvent the B-movie in a spirit of self-referential glee.
Come see if you think this is a fitting update to the great spaghetti westerns of the past.
