By Alex Cox

forty years in the past as a Graduate scholar I wrote a ebook approximately Spaghetti Westerns, referred to as 10,000 how one can Die. it is an embarrassing tome while 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, while I watch those motion pictures, i am them from a distinct viewpoint. a certified point of view maybe...I'm considering what the filmmakers meant, how they did that shot, how the director felt while his movie was once recut by way of the studio and he used to be creatively and financially screwed. 10,000 how one can Die is a wholly new publication approximately an under-studied topic, the Spaghetti Western, from a director's POV. not just have those movies stood the attempt of time; a few of them are very excessive paintings. - Alex Cox
