Death on the Run - Politics, Deviance and Nihilism in Spaghetti and other Westerns


Death on the Run compiles essays that examine the intersection of cinema and politics in Spaghetti and other Westerns. In doing so, this popular genre cinema becomes a resource that reveals a constellation composed of questions around political violence, nihilism, gender, Leftist politics and aesthetics that continue to inform the present. In Death on the Run the desperate vitality of resistance and revolt is always in a tense stand off with the cynical despair of no exit.
