The Good, The Bad and The Ugly (7 Fri 1130P) is Sergio Leone’s cowboy opera. It stars Clint Eastwood, Eli Wallach and Lee Van Cleef who must work together to uncover buried gold. “[Leone’s] close-ups are exciting and confronting, [the film itself] is a visual triumph and the [story line intertwines] ethical and narrative complexities as the characters move with varying degrees of grace and incompetence through the American Civil War.”
Johnny Depp fans can enjoy either The Astronaut’s Wife (9 Sun midnight) or The Ninth Gate (10 Sun midnight). What ? Counter-programming at midnight ?
