Nice posters Mike  Afro Afro Afro

Every time I watch Keoma I like it more and more, and that article hit on some of the things that I've been kicking around in my thoughts.

You have to not think of it as a simple Western. You have to think of Keoma as Western Mythology. But I'll go even a bit further than Griffin and say Keoma is a mythological hero, is already from the land of the dead and he rides out of the underworld (the battlefield ruined town), he goes back to the town on the edge of the Elysian Plains, the witch is DEATH the girl is LIFE, at the end, DEATH is holding the newborn LIFE.

Even my wife remarked how she enjoyed the music this time, its a film that grows on you with repeated viewings. Watch it again Wink

I guess if you can stand the soundtrack determines whether you like Keoma or not. I hated it. I wanted to like it, but that soundtrack....  Tongue

I have not watched it yet, but i did watch the main titles to check out the music.
My god, that woman can't sing a lick!

LOL! Cheesy

Well, I watched it.

At first. I thought it was a SCTV-style send-up of Robert Altman's MCCABE AND MRS MILLER (Leonard Cohen sound-alike singing lyrics which explain what we are seeing on the screen)
Then I thought it was a send-up of Peckingpah's PAT GARRETT (slo-mo action w/Dylanesque guitar & harmonica soundtrack)

Then I listened to the director commentary where he confirmed my musings but declared he was making a serious film!!!

Oh well.  AT least it had superior production values: sets, costumes etc.
