Pax and Michael examine the East-meets-West spaghetti western, The Stranger and the Gunfighter (aka Blood Money, aka El Kárate, el Colt, y el Impostor), produced by the Shaw Brothers and starring Lee Van Cleef and Lo Leih.

Seraphim Falls (2006)



Michael and Pax watch Liam Neeson hunt Pierce Brosnan in David Von Ancken's thriller (and probably parable) co-starring Michael Wincott and featuring cameos by Anjelica Huston, Wes Studi, Jimmi Simpson, and Xander Berkeley.

Also: a podcast recommendation, Wild West magazine, a couple of silent Jesse James films with James' real-life son playing the legendary outlaw, and this excellent primer on Hong Kong cinema.
