Larry Karaszewski on

800 Bullets

Released 2004
Distributor TLA Releasing

Setting aside his usual gonzo theatrics, Álex de la Iglesia deftly juggles several genres in this 2002 film including action, drama and especially comedy. A bittersweet salute to spaghetti westerns and the stuntman who made them, the film stars Sancho Gracia and Carmen Maura. The suitably dusty photography was courtesy of de la Iglesia regular, Flavio Martínez Labiano.
