Fistful of Cards

it's only Sunday and I already have a "shit movie of the week"! how sad... but the honor goes to 21, in what could've been... should've been a much better film. IMO, had they either made a documentary of the true story or adhered to it in the film adaptation, it probably would have been better. as it was, it was a terrible ham-fisted hollywood packaged turd. Kevin Spacey needs a new agent.

Last night I digested Sergio Leone's sprawling Mexican Revolution epic, Duck, You Sucker (aka A Fistful of Dynamite), and it was quite a ride, albeit a long one at 2.5+ hrs. It's not nearly a good as the Dollars Trilogy but it's good in the purpose it serves. Rod Steiger is really great. And Ennio Morricone's soundtrack is awesome, natch.
