The Quick and the Dead (Sam Raimi, 1995)


Jun-Dai and Lucía at home on their newly painted grey wall on 6 September 2013.

The premise of the film is incredibly stupid. It’s a fun ride, though. It’s a good-looking film with some classic Sam Raimi touches, and the acting carries it quite far considering how cliched and poorly developed the characters are. In particular, Ellen’s constant hand-wringing over whether she can accomplish this one thing that is the only thing we know about her character. Cort is a sort of tortured, mysterious man that no one really cares about.

I liked the bullet holes, especially the early one where the sunlight shines through it.

Herod’s house was amazing.
