The Good, the Bad, and the Weird

Monday, June 21 to Thursday June 24 at 9 PM

Having worked at the Portland International Film Festival (or PIFF, for those into brevity) this year in a box office/ticket-taking capacity, I had the inside track to purchase tickets for one of the sold out screenings of The Good, the Bad, and the Weird.  I couldn’t have been happier.

The film is one easily the best time I’ve had at the theater this year.  Of course, I’m a sucker for immense chases and Mexican stand-offs, which GBD delivers in spades (the choreography of the desert chase is some of the best I’ve ever seen).  The film is directed by Ji-Woon Kim, who gave us the intensely creepy A Tale of Two Sisters, and the enjoyable crime thriller, A Bittersweet Life.  Kim is quickly becoming one of my most reliable filmmakers working and is proving to be a master of several genres.
