Other Films / Re: Favorite Peckinpah Film
« on: March 02, 2007, 06:34:04 AM »
For those of you who appreciate Peckinpah:

Right now I'm producing the German 2-Disc SE DVD
for STRAW DOGS. As in the UK it was banned over here for 24 years.
We fought and won...
The Edition will be worthwhile for aficionados outside of Germany too:
There's my new documentary PASSION & POETRY - SAM PECKINPAH's STRAW DOGS (approx 40 minutes),
various short featurettes, the usual supects like Trailers, TV-Spots, Radio Spots, the Super-8 version of the film...
The Booklet and Audio-Commentary will be in German, everything else in English.

back to work..

What's a Helmer's Job ?

'love the Flamingo painting!!

My biggest art is to stay alive. Besides that I'm a film maker & writer.

used to be a bass player (Rock), now I only play to Pink Floyd DVD's...

20 years ago I started as a mechanic. Not a great art, but restoring old cars in a way surely is (good way of not going insane in the picture business). 'worked a year on this one I'm driving for 7 years now:

Told you, send me an e-mail..

Then again, I did respond to all e-mails so far, and yet nobody got back to me afterwards. Strange.

The DVD's are PAL / CODEFREE.

Maybe that's why nobody answered. Yet it's still bad manners (I think).

Amigos,
this ending was never supposed to be used by Corbucci. His whole goal was to make a film condemning
violence in dedicating it to Guevara, King, Kennedy...
For him Silenzio was a Christ-like character and hence
he HAD to die. I do have On-Camera interviews with him explainig this for the record.
I suppose the money-men asked him to shoot an alternative ending. But Ol' Serge was no foul and knew about the old masters like Wyler or Ford who did that kind of stuff too: shoot it in such a miserable way, that nobody (with a bit sense left) could ever use it.
That's why Silenzio is talking. And with a bit of sense for drama and knowledge of film making, it's easy to see that that stuff is just not even close to the stuff otherwise shot by Corbucci for that film. It's merely a joke. Made for the age of DVD's 30 years before it started.

Exactly.
But that's mainly for admireres of Colizzi's films, the other ones will be bored, because the films are even longer then. ;)
My Italian is pretty good, maybe I'll make an English version DVD with the additional Italian sequences english subtitled..

But there's only one fist-fight, near the end of the film (?)

I think it's always nice to hang out with fellow movie buffs who represent a total opposite opinion. I never discuss WILD BUNCH with fellow Peckinpah-fans since we all know it's impeccable, so where's the point?

Banjo, it's funny: ALL THE WAY, BOYS (Piu Forte, ragazzi), is my favorite Hill non-western. Colizzi never made comedies, basically adventure pics with lots of humor. BOYS is so unique - not many major pictures have been shot in Columbia. And it's about aviation which I love (only when it comes to OLD planes, 'just like in the picture.). Maybe I'm too romantic.
But I heard the film is not playing well in english anyway. Cut too I suppose. The German dubbing (and the Italian too) is hilarious. Very subtile funny dialogue. A friend recently restored it for German aficionados: The German version is/was 10 minutes longer than the Italian (!), BUT the Italian has some 10 minutes not in the German print. GREAT FILM :)

WATCH OUT I like too. Next to Corbucci's first with them (EVEN & UNEVEN?) and CRIMEBUSTERS the best. But they became more and more childrens pictures, which was the goal of the two, who both hate violence in films.

As for me, I rather cross the desert with Cat & Hutch... :)

One of the longest careers in the business - 50+ years.
