World cinema treat for film fans at the Linenhall

The next film in the Linenhall Film Club’s Spring season is the visually stunning The Good, The Bad, The Weird, South Korean director Kim Ji-woon’s homage to Sergio Leone’s seminal The Good, The Bad and the Ugly, set in the lawless badlands of Japanese-occupied 1930s Manchuria. A psychotic dandy gangster, a bounty hunter and an opportunistic small-time thief find themselves in a race to secure a stolen map, pursued by an international syndicate of bandits, some double-dealing drug dealers, and the amassed forces of the Japanese imperialist army. A film filled with train robberies, gun battles, knife fights, opium dens, horse chases and tense Mexican stand-offs, constant tonal surprise, occasional violence, offbeat comedic moments and grand action set-pieces. Energetic, stylish, outrageous - yes, it’s as amazing as it sounds.
