Die Coen Brothers drehen einen Western – und zwar einen richtigen

7 Comments

Ohne Cowboy-Romantik und solchem Schnickschnack. Auf sowas warte ich ja schon lange, eine Entmystifizierung der amerikanischen Wurzeln. Hätte „Gangs of America“ werden können, aber der war mir zu stilisiert. Ich warte auf einen harten, blutigen und fiesen Western, der zeigt, warum der Westen damals Wild getauft wurde.

Die Coen Brothers könnten genau so einen Western im Sinn haben:

The Coen Brothers, who are gaining accolades galore over their latest film No Country for Old Men, have revealed that they have written a realistic and rather violent western. The film would look at the reality of the wild west in the 1870’s, and it wouldn’t pull any punches. Joel Coen describes some of the more gory and brutal scenes that would be in the film.

Joel Coen says of the film that: “We’ve written a western with a lot of violence in it. There’s scalping and hanging … it’s good. Indians torturing people with ants, cutting their eyelids off.”

Then Ethan Coen reveals that: “It’s a proper western, a real western, set in the 1870s. It’s got a scene that no one will ever forget because of one particular chicken.” (Filmstalker)

Das könnte damit der erste Western werden, der mir so richtig gut gefällt. Also, ich meine, Sam Peckinpah hin oder her… Indianer, die Cowboys die Augenlider abschneiden? Splatter-Western? Von den Coens? Da bin ich dabei…

    naja, also wenn man den klassischen john wayne western entmystifiziert haben will, braucht man sich nur diverse filme von sergio leone oder eben “unforgiven” von eastwood anzuschauen.

    hoert sich trotzdem interessant an :)

    Bin auch mehr der Italowestern Fan. Der Amerikanische reizte mich nie so. Aber die Coens? Eigentlich interessiert mich so ziemlich alles was die machen erstmal und am Ende wird entschieden wie ichs finde ^^

    Open Range war für mich der Beweis, dass moderner Western so richtig krachen kann!

    super. Aber ich will ENDLICH mal “No Country for old Men” sehen! Er muss ja wohl der Knaller sein!!!

    klingt spannend. aber ich denke auch, dass die entmystifizierung schon längst stattgefunden hat. spätestens mit leone, eastwood und nicht zu vergessen: costner (ob man ihn nun mag oder nicht).
    hat jemand schon “todeszug nach yuma” gesehen?

    nein leider nicht, der film laeuft nicht in einem kino in leipzig. genauso wie “die ermordung des jesse james durch den idioten robert james” hier nicht lief. dafür aber allerlei kinderkacke :<

    kinderkacke verkauft sich besser. leider. hier in der provinz ist es noch schlimmer.

    Putting The Cost Of The ESA’s Rosetta Mission In Perspective

    "So what do we get for our €1.4bn? Rosetta is both an astounding feat of engineering (catapulting a tonne of spacecraft across millions of kilometres of space and ending up in orbit around a comet just 4 km across) and an extraordinary opportunity for science (allowing us to examine the surface of a lump of rock and ice which dates from when the Solar System formed).

    Like a lot of blue-skies science, it’s very hard to put a value on the mission. First, there are the immediate spin-offs like engineering know-how; then, the knowledge accrued, which could inform our understanding of our cosmic origins, amongst other things; and finally, the inspirational value of this audacious feat in which we can all share, including the next generation of scientists.

    Whilst those things are hard to price precisely, in common with other blue-skies scientific projects, Rosetta is cheap. At €1.4bn, developing, building, launching and learning from the mission will cost about the same as 4.2 Airbus A380s—pretty impressive when you consider that it’s an entirely bespoke robotic spacecraft, not a production airliner. On a more everyday scale, it’s cost European citizens somewhere around twenty Euro cents per person per year since the project began in 1996.

    Rosetta has already sent us some stunning images of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko and today’s landing will, with any luck, provide us with our first close-up glimpse of the chaotic surface of this dirty snowball. If you’re a sci-fi fan, then, you might consider the mission to have been worth its price tag just for the pictures. The total cost for the Rosetta mission is about €3.50 per person in Europe; based on the average cinema ticket price in the UK (€8.50), it has cost less than half of what it will cost for you to go to see Interstellar.”
