    Not to long ago I found myself watching a television screen that featured a strange and captivating scene from Sergio Leon's "Once Upon a Time in the West", the dark skinned form of Claudia Cardinale tightly pored into an old west dress enters the scene navigating past the wide eyed xray stare from local women, and the tence x-rated eyes of dust sucking highway-men of some desolate town, next a tight close up of some chokingly bazar version of Henry Fonda, his sky blue eyes seemed to be out done by his gritty brown scull-- I think something blew in my psyche at that moment, because from that point forward I've had a wicked taste for westerns (this surprised me, because outside of old John Wane movies I had zero appreciation for the genre), what I became drawn to was the weird juxtaposition of culture which westerns present, a sort of science fiction place, a mythology made of massive machines which deliver newly freed white slaves from the old world, and dangerous underworld killers who ride Jedi style on top of animals as if they were in some low budget Star Wars movie, meanwhile the landscape is some sort of prehistoric dessert filled with gold. Yeah kinda surreal, I have to thank Sergio Leone for revealing this strange place to me.
