Eclectica 156 - A Fistful of Dollars + The Passenger + Neon Bull

Apr 17, 2018, 06:57 PM

Existentialism and Pizza, Dude

This week we're covering films that, in one way or another, deliver on what their titles promise. 

"A Fistful of Dollars" really was made for about as much money as its name suggests, while "Neon Bull" really does feature a neon bull, and "The Passenger" really is an adaptation of the classic Iggy Pop song.

OK, we may have made that last one up, but after Sergio Leone's classic Western our Off the Shelf section goes seriously arthouse. Rob investigates Indicator's blu-ray of Michelangelo Antonioni's enigmatic masterpiece "The Passenger" (starring Jack Nicholson), and Graham saddles up for a rodeo as Second Run release "Neon Bull" for the first time ever in the UK. 

We're taking a week's break after this, and when we come back? Get ready, because it's war!
